Step inside The New York Botanical Garden's annual Holiday Train Show, where large-scale model trains zip around you on their nearly half-mile journey around New York City in miniature, all under the twinkling glow of the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory. Visionary artist Paul Busse and his team created a world filled with tiny versions of such tourist attractions as the Brooklyn Bridge, the Statue of Liberty and Rockefeller Center -- 150 replicas in all -- intricately crafted with bark, leaves and other natural materials. Much more than just a train show, this is a unique melding of art, nature, science and imagination that The New York Times calls "one of New York City's best holiday gifts to itself." This year's Holiday Train Show features 3,000 square feet of additional exhibition space, with dozens of new trains, bridges and tracks, plus a short behind-the-scenes film and a stunning finale of light and sound. Be sure to select your specific entrance time to the Holiday Train Show when purchasing your tickets.
