The New York Botanical Garden Train Show is a yearly tradition. The miniature trains and replicas of NYC landmark buildings and bridges are displayed. It is a fantasy world of its own.
Using a multitude of diverse natural materials such as leaves, twigs, bark, berries, seeds, pine cones, nuts, and pods, Holiday Train Show designer Paul Busse and his team at Applied Imagination in Alexandria, Kentucky, have handcrafted dozens of replicas of historic New York landmarks since the show’s inception at the Botanical Garden 18 years ago. More than 100 of those model landmarks, from museums and mansions to ballparks and bridges, will be displayed in this season’s edition of the show.
