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.
