Constructing the Garden Railway
Our carpenters and electricians run the necessary wiring and elevate all four tracks, supporting them with trusses and wood planks staked into the ground.
Planting the Railway
Our Horticulture team adorns the display with a seasonal variety of foliage, flowering plants, and woody plants.
Our Railway Engineers
Our six railway engineers place the track, complete with tresses and bridges crafted in-house. They make needed repairs and clean and lubricate all of the locomotives and cars to get them ready for the season.
The Railway Landscape
The nearly 500 feet of track courses through a seasonal plant palette that includes Callicarpa dichotoma 'Early Amethyst' (purple beautyberry), Chrysanthemum, and Salix alba var. vitellina ‘Britzensis’ (coral-bark willow).
The Blue Comet
Our collection of 31 locomotives includes the Blue Comet, one of three new locomotives this season.
Kansas City Southern
Another new locomotive, our Kansas City Southern explores the Garden Railway amid Nipponanthemum nipponicum (Nippon daisy) and Calamagrostis brachytricha (feather reed grass).
