Holiday Train Show, New York Botanical Garden, Bronx, New YorkThe Holiday Train Show is open through January 21, 2019, in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory of the New York Botanical Garden, 2900 Southern Boulevard, Bronx, New York.

Model trains zip through a display of more than 175 New York landmarks, each re-created with bark, leaves, and other natural materials.

Check out the G-scale locomotives humming past familiar sights such as the Brooklyn Bridge and Rockefeller Center on nearly a half-mile of track.

This year’s exhibition showcases Lower Manhattan —- the birthplace of New York City -— featuring the Statue of Liberty (pictured), Ellis Island, and iconic skyscrapers sharing the spotlight among old and new favorites. Making their debut this year are One World Trade Center and the historic Battery Maritime Building along with two vintage ferry boats.
