Biltmore Gardens Railway
April 5 @ 9:00 am - September 26 @ 5:00 pm
Biltmore Gardens Railway in the Conservatory pays homage to Biltmore’s founder George Vanderbilt, who was born into a well-known railroad family. His grandfather Cornelius “Commodore” Vanderbilt spent his life building an empire based on shipping and railroad concerns. Hundreds of feet of track carry G-scale locomotives and railcars through multiple rooms in Biltmore’s Conservatory, and weave through exotic botanicals and miniature replicas of estate landmarks. Created by Applied Imagination, an award-winning crew of artists, botanical experts, and landscape designers known for exhibitions at the New York Botanical Garden and the United States Botanic Garden in Washington, D.C., the exhibition in the Conservatory is a nostalgic delight.
