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.  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.  A fully-stocked gift shop will also be open.
