Easter Trains

The Chehalis-Centralia Railroad operates an annual old fashioned Easter Egg Hunt each April.

Climb aboard for a leisurely Saturday train ride while the "Easter Bunny" and "Chicken Little" hide the eggs. Upon the return of the train, children (12 years and under) will go into the "egg field" to gather candy filled Easter Eggs! Many eggs will have prize tickets inside to be redeemed in the depot.

Activities will vary for age groups 3 and under, 4 through 7, and 8 through 12.

In addition, pictures with the Easter Bunny and Chicken Little will be available for purchase on the depot deck after the hunt.

No reservations are required. Space is available on a first come, first served basis, so you are encouraged to come early. Inside seating space is limited.
