Railtown 1897 SHP


Families, friends and rail fans are encouraged to make plans to visit Railtown 1897 State Historic Park on Easter Sunday, April 16, 2017! The historic park offers a great place to celebrate the holiday with an egg hunt for children, train rides behind a historic diesel locomotive, hands-on crafts and an opportunity to meet the Easter bunny. To accommodate the various ages of children, there will be an egg hunt for ages 4 and under, one for ages 5 to 7 and another for ages 8 to 11. With special activities happening all day long, the egg hunt begins at 9:30 a.m. and excursion train rides behind 1952 Baldwin Whitcomb No.1265 historic diesel locomotive depart at 10:30 a.m., noon, 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m.

Train ride guests enjoy a memorable six-mile, 45-minute round trip ride along the rails of the famous “Movie Railroad.”  Excursion train ride tickets for Easter Sunday are available online or at the Depot Store, on a first-come, first-served basis. All train ride tickets include Park admission and cost $15 for adults, $10 for youth ages 6-17 and are free for children five and under.
