Come celebrate Holiday Express: Toys and Trains from the Jerni Collection with an up-close and careful look at how railroads were made and run long ago!

With the help of a railroad worker portrayed by a Living Historian, you’ll get the chance to explore tools and parts used to lay tracks, check out 19th-century clothing and accessories, and learn how trains transformed New York!
