NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Dozens of historic cars will be featured at the Grand Central Terminal this weekend to take visitors back in time.

As WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond reported, arriving from New Jersey for the exhibition was the Hickory Creek part of the 20th Century Limit, and from Danbury, Conn., came the Rail Museum’s 1910 Railway Post Office.

“It’s about the famous trains that used to serve Grand Central and the return of those railroad cars back to the terminal from across the nation,” said Randall Fleischer, vice president of Grand Central Terminal.

Some of the 25 cars are museum pieces, while others belong to private collectors.

“So for each special car like sleeping cars, dining cars, lounge cars, as the subject matter expert on the cars to answer questions, show you all around and tell you about the car’s history,” Fleischer said.

In Vanderbilt Hall, Kid Junction features a replica of Grand Central Terminal made entirely of Legos.

The exhibition runs until 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
