All aboard the 'Easter Trains' at Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum

NORTH JUDSON, Ind.  – The Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum announced its annual Easter Trains event where children of all ages can participate in an Easter Egg Hunt and see the Easter Bunny.

The Easter event started in 2006 and will feature over 6,000 eggs to be found by children this year.

The events happening on Saturday, March 23, and Saturday, March 30, will feature an Easter Egg Hunt after each train ride.

Organizers say the child who finds the golden egg in each age category will receive a special prize.

Parents will have an opportunity to take photos of their children with the Easter Bunny on both event dates.

A gift bag with a coloring book, crayons, and stickers will be given to children while aboard the train.

A portion of money from tickets sold at the Easter Train events will help support the Purdue Railroad Club.

The Easter Trains depart from the station in North Judson on each event date at 9:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m., and 3:00 p.m. CDT.

The train takes passengers on a 45-minute countryside ride, crossing the Kankakee River at English Lake before returning.

Tickets are $20 for adults and $14 for children ages 3 to 15 for coach seating.

Infants and toddlers under 3 are free when riding on a parent’s or guardian’s lap.

Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased here.

The Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to the preservation of railroad history in northwest Indiana.

The museum educates the public through interpretive displays and its tourist railroad operations.
