A free tour of the Pelham train station this month is the first in a series of events sponsored by Metro-North to promote local railroad history and Grand Central Terminal’s centennial. The famous train center turned 100 in February.
A pair of talks and tours of the 1893 train station in Pelham will be held at the Pelham Street Fair on June 23. Mario Caruso, a historian from Yonkers, will lead groups at 1 and 2 p.m. Tours will meet on Fifth Avenue near the train station.
Railroad enthusiasts will also have a chance to win a trip to Grand Central, which includes Metro-North tickets, lunch at Junior’s, audio tours of Grand Central and a one-year membership to the New York Transit Museum.
Metro-North also plans to host tours of the train stations in Yonkers and Brewster on Sept. 7 and 15.
