Holiday Train Show in New York

NYC is always a happening place, and there is something to see and do around the city. New York Botanical garden is an important national landmark located in the Bronx, New York City. Right now, New York’s annual train show is chugging up around the garden, entertaining the guests.

Visitors will see more than 20 locomotives made out of plant materials (barks, twigs, etc.) during the holiday train show. The locomotives will traverse more than 150 replicas of New York City landmarks like Yankee Stadium. For the past twenty-three years, the train show has celebrated New York City’s rich history of buildings and monuments by recreating these iconic structures with plant material inside the Botanical Garden’s Greenhouse.

There is a new display this year in honor of the 50th anniversary of the World Fair. The art studio shows about how the designer Paul Busse and his team create these magnificent displays for the show. The famous event “Bar Car Nights” – a series of 21 evenings featuring music and art demonstrations- is also part of the holiday activities in the garden.

About the Designer:

The master builder of the train show, Paul Busse, is based in Kentucky, and his works are widely exhibited in museums and national botanical gardens. The New York botanical garden approached him to design a holiday train show in 1992. Busse's first Holiday Train show had close to 150 NYC landmarks. He is a botany and history enthusiast. The designer and his team have conducted a dozen exhibits across the country.

Event Date: The event is until January 19, 2015.

Event Timings:

Tuesday – Sunday: 10 am to 6 pm,

Extended special hours for Saturdays are from November 15 – January 17 and for the holidays,  December 20 – January 1: 10 am to 7 pm.
