EAGLES
Introduction

This group of pictures shows two of the original twelve cast iron eagles that once stood proudly over the original Grand Central Terminal in New York City.

Metro North Railroad of New York City re-aquired the first original eagle in 1995 and Architectural Iron Company had the distinct honor of restoring the immense raptor to it's current better than new condition. It now stands proud over the Lexington Avenue entrance to Grand Central Station in New York City.

During 2001 Metro North Railroad re-aquired the second original eagle and again turned to Architectural Iron Company for it's much needed restoration. It's now complete and installed outside the station on the southwest corner facing 42nd Street.

Trivia note:
Each eagle stands over eight feet tall with a wingspan of over thirteen feet, weighing in at over four thousand pounds each. There were three different heads on the original twelve eagles, left facing, forward facing and right facing.

Two down... ten more to go.
