A crowd favorite for years, The Glancy Trains are from the collection of Alfred R. Glancy Jr. (1908–1973), real estate financier and former-owner of the Empire State Building in New York City. During the 1950s and 1960s, Mr. Glancy enjoyed hosting “train parties” for friends, neighbors, schoolchildren and scout groups each holiday season at his home in Grosse Pointe Shores.
After his death in 1973, the Glancy family donated their extensive collection to the Detroit Historical Museum. The family’s generous support of the Museum’s train exhibit and Society continues to this day.
