The 17th Annual Holiday Train Show, on display in the New York Botanical Garden’s Enid A. Haupt Conservatory from November 23, 2007 to January 13, 2007, presents a winter wonderland twinkling lights and sixteen model trains, including the Union Pacific, New York Central, and Great Northern Railway, zipping along over bridges and on 1,000 feet of winding tracks past scaled replicas of New York landmarks made by award-winning designer Paul Busse and his team of landscape designers and botanical architects at Applied Imagination in Alexandria, Lentucky. Orange slices, cinnamon sticks, poppy pods, pine cones, twigs and other plant parts make a festive brew as the materials used to create the more than 140 architectural reproductions. Returning favorites like the Empire State Building, the Brooklyn Bridge, Yankee Stadium, and St. Patrick’s Cathedral were joined by 2007’s new additions–Ellis Island and the George Washington Bridge.

The George Washington Bridge is a toll suspension bridge spanning the Hudson River, connecting Washington Heights in the Manhattan to Fort Lee in New Jersey by means of Interstate 95, U.S. Route 1/9. U.S. Route 46 ends halfway across the bridge at the state border. Opened in 1927, the GWB is one of the world’s busiest bridges in terms of vehicle traffic.

The New York Botanical Garden, spanning some 250 acres of Bronx Park, was founded in 1891 on part of the grounds of the Belmont Estate, formerly owned by the tobacco magnate Pierre Lorillard, after a fund-raising campaign led by Columbia University botanist Nathaniel Lord Britton, who was inspired to emulate the Royal Botanic Gardens in London. It contains 48 different gardens and plant collections.
