Holiday trains run circles around Obama homes

Visitors watch a train pass by a model of the Bahai House at the garden's annual Wonderland Express holiday train show.

Models of the Obama White House, the Obama home in Chicago and the house Michelle Obama grew up in are on display at holiday train shows at the Chicago Botanic Garden and the U.S. Botanic Garden in Washington.

Holiday train shows are also held in other gardens around the country, with each show featuring trains running past miniature versions of local landmark buildings. Other locations for the holiday train shows include the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx, Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids, Mich., and Krohn Conservatory in Cincinnati.
