"The New York Botanical Garden is the setting of one of the city's most celebrated winter traditions: The Holiday Train Show. This exhibition features dozens of locomotives, freight trains, and trolleys zipping through a whimsical landscape populated by more than 150 models of beloved city landmark, composed entirely of leaves, twigs, seeds, pinecones, and other plant parts. Together with his team at Applied Imagination, Paul Busse and the horticulturists at The New York Botanical Garden create this tribute to the beauty of New York's iconic architecture. Behind-the-scenes photographs reveal the process of bringing the exhibition to life, and detailed views of each building reveal the artistry and ingenuity that goes into each architectural element. Essays explore the engineering of the tracks and bridges as well as notable featured trains"--
