Remarks & Notes 
If you visit Grand Central Terminal, head for Tracks 17 to 11 and the Graybar Passage, go half way down, look up and you can see this mural. This work is titled “Transportation and Construction” and was painted in the late 1920's by Edward Trumbull. Trumbull is most famous for a ceiling mural he did across the street at the Chrysler Building. In this mural Trumbull created images of technological progress that includes trains and airplanes. And here at RailPictures.net, the mural we are interested in is the one showing T-1 electric No. 1166 sweeping a train along under the Highbridge in the Bronx. Other panels show track laying and airplanes in flight. Like the ceiling in the main concourse, the paint has suffered from severe yellowing, and I would think for the same reason, nicotine. If you are one of the 3/4 of million people who go through the building every day, do take in this sublime view.
