Whippany Railway Museum’s “Easter Bunny Express” Train Rides Return on March 23, 24 & 30, 2024

The Whippany Railway Museum’s “Easter Bunny Express” is back for 2024! Since 1992, the Museum has been welcoming thousands of families who come to Whippany to celebrate the return of Spring with this fun-themed train ride through Morris County.

The Easter Bunny and helpers will be on board the train greeting everyone during the 45-minute round-trip ride along the historic Whippanong Trail.  Your train ride experience departs from and returns to the Whippany Railway Museum site in Whippany, NJ.  You’ll enjoy the comfort of heated passenger coaches as the Bunny makes his way through the cars to visit with you and your children.  Kids are sure to be delighted when they receive a special gift from the Easter Bunny while riding aboard this memorable train.

Ride in the “Easter Bunny Express” Premium Club Cars:

SUBSCRIPTION CLUB CAR – “Lackawanna No. 2454”
Surround yourself with the grandeur of another era onboard the award-winning Lackawanna Subscription Club Car No. 2454, which radiated elegance on a train once known as ‘The Millionaire’s Express’ that operated between Hoboken Terminal and Gladstone, NJ.

CLUB CAR – “Jersey Coast”
The Central Railroad of New Jersey club car ‘Jersey Coast’ is a beautifully-restored car that features all the amenities offered by the CNJ’s deluxe ‘Blue Comet’ passenger train of the 1930s.  ‘The Blue Comet’ ran between Jersey City and Atlantic City, NJ, and the striking paint scheme of cream and blue reminds one of a comet streaking through space.

Our standard “Dieseliner” coaches may look modern, but they are historic in their own right.   Still in service at Whippany over a half-century since they were constructed, you can enjoy a relaxing ride aboard these cars that once conveyed commuters to Hoboken Terminal from 1970 through the early-2000s.
