Chicago Botanic Garden, Glencoe, Illinois

This Saturday the Model Railroad Garden:  Landmarks of America exhibit is chuggin’ back into town. The event features a spectacular showcase of model trains and 3D landmark exhibits. 

The Model Railroad Garden began as a seven-track layout intended to be a 5-month, one-time only, run.  However, due to its resounding success, the happening now features a 7,500 square foot exhibit with 18 operating trains, running on 17 tracks. The layouts are built around American landmarks and points of interest.  Mount Rushmore, the Statue of Liberty, Yellowstone Park and Mount St. Helens are just a few of the sites that can be seen.  There are annual revisions to the landscaping to keep the scenery fresh and interesting.  This year’s additions include Cape Cod and the New Orleans’s French Quarter.  Upon the close of the railroad season, the trains will have travelled an astonishing 22,000 miles.

Admission prices to attend opening day of the Model Railroad Garden:  Landmarks of America event are $6.00 for adults, $5.00 for seniors, $4.00 for children ages 3 to 12, and free for children 2 years of age, or younger.  Garden members will receive a $1.00 discount, while Garden Plus Members will be admitted for free.

Back by popular demand and bigger and better than ever, the Model Railroad Garden:  Landmarks of America exhibit opens this Saturday. Bring the entire family out for a captivating day -- ALL ABOARD!
