Easter bunny to ride rails again at Transportation Museum

The big bunny will ride the rails once again as the Easter Bunny Express rolls out at the N.C. Transportation Museum in Spencer.

Two weekends of the annual ride are planned, Saturday and Sunday and April 19-20. There will be train rides and activities across the museum’s 60-acre property and additional activities such as professional photos and breakfast, lunch and snacks with the bunny.

The highlight of the Easter Bunny Express is, of course, a train ride around historic Spencer Shops on the grounds of the museum, with the Easter Bunny riding along. The bunny will move through the train, handing out treats, meeting kids and parents, and taking photos with families.

Admission and the Easter Bunny Express Train Ride is $13 for adults, $11 for seniors and military members, $9 for children 3-12, and free for children 2 and younger. Upgrade options are available.

Ticket options, more information and ticket purchases are available at www.nctrans.org. Advance purchase is recommended. The ride will be held rain or shine. Taxes and fees apply.
