Trim your tree with history!  Our gleaming collectable ornament was made expressly for the 2016 launch of the New-York Historical Society annual ornament program.  The delightful Holiday Express locomotive with Penn Station ornament is just the ticket for your very own New-York history tree.

Trains exert a magical attraction over children of all ages. The world of trains, encapsulated by the golden age of toy making, transports us to realms of nostalgia, memory making, learning and affection. Holiday Express, on view annually at the New-York Historical Society, evokes the progress of transport – from steam locomotives to ships, automobiles, airplanes and beyond. New-York Historical's Jerni Collection contains more than 11,000 toys and trains created between about 1850 and 1950 in Europe and the United States.

Inspired by Gebrüder Bing, Locomotive, ca. 1900; Märklin, Pennsylvania Railroad Station, 1904
