Holiday Train Show – 25 Years of Holiday Magic

What if New York were like this?

Winter is the season for trains in New York.  No summer perspiration, sardined in your holiday train trip.

One of the greatest and my favorite is the NYBC Holiday Train Show. The show features more than a dozen large-scale model railway trains (G scale size- the largest) and over 140 replicas of iconic New York landmarks, from the original Penn Station to the Empire State Building Combining realistic builds with the fantasy effected from the greenery around the well known buildings into a fairy like, mystical world with New York City skyline.

These Models of amazing architecture and iconic  landmarks  were hand crafted from acorn, pine, twigs, leaves, seeds and all types of plant pieces – a walk through the woods by their creators (architects in their own rights) from naked, empty beds to live creations of beauty spanning the entire year, every year from their home in Kentucky.

With the amazing attention to detail you are sure to find something you love for every member of your group from toddler to ‘taddler’ bringing families together over the holidays for over twenty years since it’s creator- Paul G. Busse started in 1992.

Walk away with a greater appreciation of New York and join the most beloved family traditions while enjoying a special bonding experience between young and old in the tranquility of this mystical creation of  complexity and imagination.

Must be seen to believe!
