JAD Hiawatha On Display At Grand Central

I had a fun day in the Big Apple last weekend. New York is always a blast around the holidays. One of my stops is always Grand Central Station to see the holiday laser light show and to visit the Transit Museum Store. I was surprised and delighted at the window display at the store this year, which features a JAD Standard gauge Hiawatha and an AF Standard gauge Pocahontas set. I don't own either of them, so it was a pleasure to see them so prominently displayed. Inside the store there was a reprise of the large 0 gauge layout that I saw last year. This drew a big crowd.

Jim, Do you have a closer picture of the yellow info sheets in the front corner? I'm curious what they said about the trains. Did you find out what number the Hiawatha was?

Sorry, Arno, I don't have a readable photo of the info tags and it didn't dawn on me to look for the number of the set or loco. If I get back up there before the display is taken down I'll be sure to check it out. Jim
