The Holiday Train Show runs through January 16, 2012, in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory at the New York Botanical Garden, 2900 Southern Boulevard, Bronx, New York City, New York.

Model trains zip over bridges and past replicas of New York landmarks made of plant parts such as nuts, bark, and leaves. Show favorites include the original Yankee Stadium, Statue of Liberty, and Brooklyn Bridge.

This year visitors can get an insider’s look at how the replicas are constructed. Models in different stages of completion will show how a structure destined for the Holiday Train Show is framed and begins taking shape through the addition of plant material. Photos, interpretive panels, tools, and supplies help tell the story of how the magic comes together.

Advance purchase of tickets for the show is recommended. Tickets are timed and sold in 15 minute increments.
