On April 17th the trains are scheduled to depart the NJ Transit Glen Rock Boro Hall station at 9:30AM, 12:00 and 2:30PM. These trips will run up through Bergen County and into scenic Rockland County, New York. Spring will be in the air as we ride along enjoying the scenes outside the windows and the activities inside the cars.
During the one hour and 30 minute ride the Easter Bunny will hop through the train and visit each child and give them a special gift from his basket. In addition each child can have his or her picture taken with the bunny so they can always remember their ride, so bring your cameras. Also on board will be other cartoon characters to entertain the kids and make for a great day out for all on board. For more information or to order tickets visit http://www.easterbunnytrain.com/
These trips are being run to help raise funds to help the VRA restore and preserve the historic NYS&W Hawthorne train station. The station has been undergoing a major restoration and rebuild over the last 7 months and is scheduled to be reopened to the public on April 29th. Please visit http://www.vratrips.org/
So why not gather up the kids and Grandparents and join the VRA and the Easter Bunny on these fun train rides. You will not only have a great time with your family you will also be helping to preserve history for generations to come to enjoy. Tickets for these trains usually sell out quickly so don’t delay call or visit them on-line today. The ticket office is located at 80 Royal Ave., Hawthorne in the train station and is open Tuesday and Thursday nights from 6 to 8 pm and Saturday from 12 to 3 pm all other times just leave a message and they will call you back.
