The 25th Annual Holiday Train Show at the New York Botanical Garden gets under way this month, and should not be missed. Creative directors use plants, flowers, trimmings and other materials to create the massive model train setup.
Enchanting model trains zip through a display of 150 landmarks, each re-created with bark, leaves, and other natural materials—all under the twinkling glow of the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory. Marvel at G-scale locomotives humming along among familiar sights such as the Brooklyn Bridge, Statue of Liberty, and Rockefeller Center on nearly a half-mile of track. The recent exhibition expansion continues with more trains and a true New York finale featuring a whimsical tribute to the iconic Coney Island amusement park’s architecture and attractions.
The train show will be open from November 19th through January 16th, 2017. Tickets range between $10 and $30 and will be available soon. Advanced reservations are strongly recommended.
