Peek Inside New York Botanical Garden's 2016 Holiday Train Show

Now in its 25th year, the annual Holiday Train Show at the New York Botanical Garden has wowed New Yorkers with their elaborate displays for a quarter-century. Our friends at Curbed recently went to the NYBG to give you a peek at what to expect from the show.

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, an all-new Queensboro bridge, and a true New York finale featuring a whimsical tribute to the iconic Coney Island amusement park’s architecture and attractions.

Catch this must-see train show any time the New York Botanical Garden is open, until January 17th, 2017.
