About the Holiday Train Show
The Holiday Train Show is one of New York City's most cherished holiday traditions. Model trains puff along a half-mile of track in and around more than 140 New York landmark buildings and bridges constructed entirely of natural materials including nuts, tree bark, fruits, pine cones, and leaves. Set in the warmth of the historic, Victorian-era Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, Holiday Train Show favorites include replicas of the original Yankee Stadium, the Statue of Liberty, and the Brooklyn Bridge.
