PC: Private Rail Siding

Fred, The tracks of Grand Central Terminal (not Station, which is a 
subway stop) go right under the Waldorf. The Waldorf did indeed have 
it's own private siding, although officially it was one of the 
terminal's tracks. It could be used by any visiting dignitary who had 
a private rail car. According to an article in Trains magazine, it 
was last used in the late '60s for an Andy Warhol party.

I imagine the siding is still there, but I doubt it will be used 
again for its original purpose.
