Bar Car Nights: NYC’s Favorite Train Show Is Bigger Than Ever!

Enchanting model trains zip through a display of 150 landmarks, each re-created with bark, leaves, and other natural materials—all under the twinkling glow of the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory. Marvel at G-scale locomotives humming along among familiar sights such as the Brooklyn Bridge, Statue of Liberty, and Rockefeller Center—surprising at every turn—on nearly a half-mile of track. This year’s exhibition features dozens of new trains, bridges, and tracks; a captivating short film of the show's behind-the-scenes magic; and a stunning multisensory finale of light and sound.

The NYBG has designated the Friday, December 4, 2015 to celebrate their LGBT Bar Car Nights series from 7PM - 10PM. On these nights exclusively for adults 21 and over, the wintry landscape of NYBG sets the scene for festive outdoor adventures, with an after-dark viewing of the expanded Holiday Train Show®, now with 3,000 additional square feet, as the centerpiece. Sip a complimentary cocktail as you journey through a series of station stops, including ice sculpture carving demonstrations under the starlight; delicious and festive treats from Frosty's Schnapp's Haus, the new Barvarian-themed outdoor dining space; an intimate jazz set in the warmth of the Pine Tree Café; and the playful fire and light performances of Cirque de Light.

New for 2015, see a completely reimagined replica of the New York Public Library!

About the Trains
This year, look for more model trains than ever before, with a quarter-mile of track hosting over a dozen large-scale model railway locomotives. Don’t forget to look up as you explore—a number of new bridges featured in this year's exhibition come together to create an aerial display of trains soaring overhead!
