JAMESTOWN — Railtown 1897 State Historic Park and the California State Railroad Museum Foundation invite families, friends and rail fans to visit the historic park on Easter Sunday, April 21, 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 noon and excursion train rides behind 1952 Baldwin Whitcomb No.1265 historic diesel locomotive depart at 11 a.m. and 1 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 if still available. 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.
