Nick Cave’s Technicolor horses have given way to vintage locomotives. See 16 railroad relics, such as a 20th Century Limited car dating back to 1948, along platforms 34 through 37. Plus, check out model trains and a transit antiques fair in Vanderbilt Hall, as well as live music and retail discounts throughout the terminal. If you’re taking the shuttle to 42nd St–Times Sq, hop on one of the old-school IRT subway cars running all weekend. Go to grandcentralterminal.com/centennial for more information.
