The train departs from Milford, NY and takes you about an hour up the line towards Cooperstown. The antique cars were festively decorated and Graham loved being part of the train experience. Having been read "Train Mice" millions of times, as well as seeing countless "Thomas the Train" shows he was very happy to meet a real live conductor.
After a brief snack of cookies, chips and juice boxes, the real excitement suddenly began...
From the rear of the car strange figures were working their way towards us.
The commotion was met with silent disbelief.
THE EASTER BUNNY IS HERE!!
(OK, Truth be told, it was really Bugs Bunny filling in for him as he did in this classic 1947 Warner Brothers cartoon but Graham didn't know that!)
Afterwards, having depleted his own chocolate supply, Graham is busted checking out purses for any lingering sweets.
The train reversed direction and headed back to Milford, giving us a few moment to pose for some shots.
Before we reached our starting point though, the kids were called by age to the open car at the front of the train for some giant Easter egg rolling!
