The Monticello Railway Museum has added another event that figures to capitalize on the train’s popularity.
The Bunny Eggspress will leave the station on April 7-8 — the two days preceding Easter in 2023 — and treat riders to an egg hunt, a visit with the Easter Bunny, a treat bag and a commemorative item as part of a 90-minute trip.
There are three levels of service offered on each ride: coach class ($20 per person), first class ($150 for a table of four) and private car experience ($600 for a 12-seat lounge). Three train rides are available each day (10 a.m., noon, 2 p.m.).
The train leaves from the Wabash Depot in Monticello and is open to all ages. During the ride, the train will stop in a grassy area for the egg hunt, so dress accordingly.

The Bunny Eggspress is another addition to the Railway’s inventory of special train rides. The most popular, of course, is the Polar Express, for which tickets often sell out in minutes. Other special train rides have centered around Halloween, for example, or other holidays.
