There will be plenty of trainspotting at the Missouri Botanical Garden's Gardenland Express Holiday Flower and Train Show
, an event celebrating the finest in garden decor and the thrills of model railroading. Trains of all kinds chug along 900 feet of track bedecked for the holidays. They travel through towns and tunnels covered and surrounded by thousands of poinsettias and flowers. All of this locomotion proves that when it comes to holiday beautification, the folks at the garden don't mess around. They are seriously passionate about plants.
