As part of the ongoing celebrations of the 50th and 75th anniversaries of the New York World’s Fair, see working G scale model trains make their merry way through an outdoor display that includes a miniature of the World’s Fair Unisphere. The model train show is presented by the Long Island Garden Railway Society at the Queens Botanical Garden, all three days of Memorial Day weekend, 10 AM to 5 PM.
The train show is FREE with Garden admission ($4 adults, $3 seniors, $2 students and children 3-12) Plus, the whole family can grab the “express” for a motorized train ride through select parts of the Garden (additional fee applies).
The Queens Botanic Garden is on Main Street in Flushing. Click here for the NYC Parks Dept. website with additional information, including transportation.
