11th Annual Holiday Train Show / Grand Central Terminal Centennial Grand Central turns 100 in 2013 and the New York Transit Museum is starting the party early with its 11th Annual Holiday train Show! In a brand new layout built by Lionel, model Metro-North and New York Central trains depart from a miniature GCT on a 34’ long two level “O” gauge layout. Vintage model trains from the Museum’s collection and New York Central Railroad posters from the 1920s – 1940s are also on display. The show, at the Transit Museum’s annex at Grand Central, runs from November 21, 2012, through February 10, 2013. Photo: Metropolitan Transportation Authority / Patrick Cashin.

Simply watching Adventure Time is often enough to make us hungry for sweets, but now we have an actual edible Candy Kingdom to tantalize our tastebuds. This mouthwateringly awesome Gingerbread Candy Kingdom was made by Redditor IHaveAFluffyCat (who actually does have an adorable fluffy cat).

The amount of time, effort, and candy that went into this work of edible art is amazing. It’s beautifully detailed from top to bottom, but we’re particularly impressed by the Gumball Guardians, whose sugar glass heads contain real gumballs.
