Easter Bunny Train Rides in Wayne NJ are back for 2013!
The Volunteer Railroaders Association aka VRA has announced the return of their very popular Easter Bunny Train Ride to be held this year on March 23rd. Ticket prices are only $9 for children under 12 and $13 for everyone else.
Wayne/Route 23 Transit Center on the March 23rd the trains are tentatively scheduled (check website) to depart this NJ Transit station (Route 23 South & West Belt Parkway, Wayne, NJ 07470) at 9 am, 11 am, 1 pm and 3 pm. These trips will run out through scenic Morris County and back. Along the way the trains will pass by the Boonton Restoration yard, where much of the railroad equipment destined for the New Jersey Transportation Heritage Center is being worked on or is in storage.
During the one hour 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://easterbunnytrain.com/
This year's trips are funding the VRA's effort to help preserve NJ's rich railroad history by continuing the restoration efforts of the Hawthorne NJ NYS&W RR station.
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.
