Subway Time! Speaking of subways (see my last post), this is one of the best kept secrets of New York City. This is by far one of the best transit museums I have been to. It was really fun, our tour guide had worked for the subway for 40 years! Wow! Like I said, there were some early attempts at elevated subway reproductions in 2 7/8's and standard gauge (Interurbans and Std Gauge Knobby Roof Day Coaches).
I'd urge you to take a trip next time you are in NYC. It's a quick subway ride to Brooklyn (1o minutes on the train from City Hall Station in NYC to City Hall Station in Brooklyn). Worth every penny! If nothing else, you definitely walk away from this with some really interesting ideas for your layout and for your train room.
