NYC’s Favorite Train Show Is Bigger Than Ever!

Enchanting model trains zip through a display of 150 landmarks, each re-created with bark, leaves, and other natural materials—all under the twinkling glow of the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory. Marvel at G-scale locomotives humming along among familiar sights such as the Brooklyn Bridge, Statue of Liberty, and Rockefeller Center—surprising at every turn—on nearly a half-mile of track. This year’s exhibition features 3,000 square feet of additional exhibition space, making room for dozens of new trains, bridges, and tracks; a captivating short film of the show's behind-the-scenes magic; and a stunning multisensory finale of light and sound. 

The show is indoors (part of the Conservatory) so no need to worry about the cold weather. However, strollers are not allowed inside the exhibition and they ask you park them outside, so bring a baby carrier if you don't have a walker.

You can buy tickets at the entrance to the gardens if you are unsure if you will make your strictly designated time slot although I would be careful of this during weekends when I am told it is busy.

Afterwards visit their Gingerbread Cafe where they have high chairs and a selection of food trucks (tacos, burgers and pretzels) along with a selection of sweets.
