Houston, Texas also had its own Grand Central Station, operated by the Southern Pacific.

Perhaps the most obscure "GRAND CENRAL STATION" of all was a tin lithographed toy station, manufactured by IVES, about 1920.
 
Though lettered "GRAND CENTRAL STATION", the toy station bears not the slightest resemblence to its namesake, instead, accurately replicating a suburban or small-town depot.
 
A photo of it can be seen at the top of page 61 of Ron Hollander's "ALL ABOARD".
 
LIONEL also offered this station, along with a glass-roofed trainshed that could be purchased separatley......
