More information about Holiday Train Show

The Holiday Train Show was first created in 1992 by Applied Imagination, a design company founded by Paul Busse and led by his daughter, Laura Busse Dolan. The company still designs and builds the show each year.

The event features replicas of American steam engines, 19th-century streetcars, and modern passenger and freight trains, and more, capturing centuries of transportation and city history in one room.

What to watch for

  • The trains run on a total half-mile-plus of track between the indoor and outdoor areas.
  • The landmarks represented in the Holiday Train Show display include the Statue of Liberty, New York Public Library, Saks Fifth Avenue, and more.
  • Staying true to the NYBG's roots, pieces of plants are incorporated into the landmarks. A leaf from a plant called the enormous grandleaf seagrape, for example, is used as the roof of the TWA Hotel model.
  • Don't forget to look up! Trains also run overhead on replicas of New York's bridges.
