        Exploring Scale and Proportion at the Holiday Train Show

        Explore scale and proportion with this media gallery from Treasures of New York that offers a behind-the-scenes look at the design and installation of the annual Holiday Train Show at the New York Botanical Garden.

        This annual event features more than 150 replicas of iconic New York landmarks made entirely of natural materials, such as bark, twigs, seeds and pine cones. Unlike an architectural model, which is a perfect replica of a building, botanical architecture model is scaled down to a size that takes into account the 3D landscape. Traversing through the New York City landscape are more than 20 large-scale G-gauge model trains, which is the largest available scale in model train.
