    I went to the Grand Ave Bus Depot last month, and they have a cat too (I was assured it was a cat and not a rat).

    Funny, I’ve been to the gift shop many times and hadn’t notice the Sadie memorabilia. I’ll have to look next time.

      The Sadie stuffed cats are over near the other children type things, if you walk in over to the right side of the store. I don’t remember seeing them at the annex in Grand Central, and I don’t think you can buy them on the Transit Museum’s online store.

    I have seen Sadie, but didn’t know her name. I would *LOVE* if they got her a tiny conductor hat (I’ve been meaning to ask you how you scored yours, by the way). I love hats on animals!

    How awesome that you are going to Japan! I can’t wait to see and read about your train adventures from over there.

      I think it would be hilarious to see her in a Conductor’s hat. But I doubt she’s the type of cat that would allow that.

      Oh, how I got my conductor’s hat you mean? You know I don’t even know how I managed that… I’m not sure if you know of a conductor that goes by the name of Curley (though to pretty girls I think he uses his first name, Tim). He is… how do I say… a little “out there”. He creeped me out at first, but he’s a good guy. One day he was wearing some camouflage hat, and not his conductor’s hat. He said he lost it in White Plains or something. Then the next day he seemed to have some hat that was kind of ripped up in the back. I’m not sure if it was the same hat he lost. Anyways, he asked me if I wanted it. I was like yeah, sure, thinking he was joking. But sure enough, he went and gave it to me, and told everyone on the train that I was the newest Metro North Conductor. LOL.

    Hmmm I don’t know Curley but he does sound “out there”. I have one of the skeleton keys. That’s about my only MN souvenir.

    Just wanted to say I appricate the post. You have really put a lot of time into your posts and it is just great!

    I’ve enjoyed there on the gift shop but didn’t notice Sadie memorabilia.

  6. I want to BE Sadie. Lounging all day in the old trains? What a life!
