Easter Bunny Train Ride Wayne & Glen Rock trips are back for 2012!

The Volunteer Railroaders Association has announced the return of their very popular Easter Bunny Train Ride to be held this year on March 31st and April 1st. Ticket prices remain only $9.00 for children under 12 and $13.00 for everyone else. If you purchase your tickets on line at http://easterbunnytrain.com you’ll save 50 cents per ticket.

On March 31st the trains will depart from the NJ Transit Rt. 23 Transit Center at 9:30 am, 12 noon and 2:30 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 NJ Transportation Heritage Center is being worked on or stored.

On April 1st we depart from the NJ Transit Glen Rock Boro Hall station at 9:30 am, 12 noon and 2:30 pm. These trips will run up through Bergen County and beyond. 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. Bring your Camera Mom & Dad!! The Easter Bunny will stop at each family and sit for pictures with your children. 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/ or call the VRA at 973-238-0555, major credit cards are accepted.

This year’s trips are funding the restor­ation efforts of the Hamptonburgh NY Caboose Museum and the Middletown and New Jersey Railroad’s GE 44 Ton locomotive #1. Plus the VRA’s contin­ued effort to help preserve NJ’s rich railroad history.

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 go on-line to purchase today. The ticket office is located at 80 Royal Avenue, Hawthorne in the train station. Volunteers will be at the train station Saturdays from 12 – 4 pm. All other times just leave a message and we will call you back.
