Tickets are getting snapped up for the annual Holiday Train Show at the NYBG in the Bronx. This annual display of trains in the conservatory space is a highlight of the season for many families.
The show displays historic landmarks and model trains speeding along more than a quarter mile of track. All recreations are made entirely from natural materials the towering Brooklyn Bridge in sugar pine cones, a pomegranate torch for Lady Liberty.
Tickets are available in 15-minute increments. When you purchase tickets online, you can choose your date and start time in advance. Once you enter the Conservatory you can take as much time as you want to view the show. You'll also have access to the entire garden (250 acres) so dress warm and plan for a walk after the show to see the spectacularly decorated grounds. Note: Bring your own snacks. The food at NYBG is middling at best.
