Ride a Vintage Train to Visit the Easter Bunny at Danbury Railway Museum

Event description:

The Easter Bunny will once again pay a visit to the Danbury Railway Museum and you can take a ride in a vintage train through the historic railyard to visit him. Each child will receive a small gift from the Bunny. Reservations are suggested and may be made by visiting the museum's Web site. The short train ride in a fully-restored 1953 New Haven RR Rail Diesel Car (Budd RDC), will take visitors past the historic turntable- currently undergoing a major restoration- over 70 vintage railroad cars and locomotives, and many unique pieces of railroad history, including a Boston & Maine steam locomotive built in 1907. The train ride will stop at the Easter Bunny's special railroad car. The museum's beautifully restored circa-1910 Railway Post Office (RPO) car will also be open. Of course, the exhibits inside the restored 1903 Danbury station will be open, along with a coloring station, temporary tattoos, Thomas play table, and the operating model train layouts.
