As everyone is now aware, the COVID-19 Virus (Coronavirus) has had a dramatic impact on almost every aspect of our lives. The Cooperstown & Charlotte Valley is no exception as we prepare for the start of our 2020 Operating Season in April. We are currently monitoring the situation, and will make a final decision on March 21, 2020 as to the feasibility of operating our 2020 Easter Bunny Express Trains. This decision will be based on recommendations from both the CDC and the New York State Department of Health, as well as any recommendations presented by local health agencies. The health and safety of our passengers and volunteer crew members has and always will be our number one concern. That fact will be the utmost determining factor moving forward. If the decision is made to cancel our Easter Trains, ticketed passengers will be informed and their ticket purchases will be refunded.

The Leatherstocking Railway Historical Society (LRHS) and the Cooperstown & Charlotte Valley Railroad cordially invites you to join us for fun filled train rides with the Easter Bunny and friends on Saturdays and Sundays, April 4th, 5th and 11th, 2020 at 1:00PM. Our Easter Bunny Express Trains all depart from the Milford Depot on NYS Route 166 (136 East Main Street) in Milford, NY, located 8 miles south of Cooperstown, for a two hour train ride. The Easter Bunny and friends will be on the train entertaining passengers, and complementary snacks and refreshments will be available on board for all to enjoy, with additional snacks and souvenirs available for sale.
At the Railroad’s beautifully decorated O’Neill Station we will disembark passengers for an Easter Egg Hunt before returning to Milford. On the return trip to Milford we will host our Easter Egg Roll Game in our Open Air Car with all children participating receiving a treat. And throughout the ride there will be plenty of opportunities for photographs with the Easter Bunny and his friends. Fun for the entire family!
Trains will be heated if the weather warrants it, but passengers are advised to dress warmly depending on conditions.
Tickets are $21 for adults, $20 for seniors, $18 for children (ages 3-12), & children under the age of three ride free! A $1 off discount rate is available for groups of 10 or more paying passengers purchasing all tickets at once.
