The Bunny Trail

By Linda Tancs

Easter is fast approaching.  That means the usual Easter egg hunts, decorated eggs and Easter Bunny photos with the kids.  Want something a little different?  How about a train ride aboard a 1916-vintage steam locomotive through the scenic Chehalis Valley in Washington State? Just a 90-minute drive from either Portland, Oregon, or Seattle, the nine-mile journey along former Milwaukee Road track winds through pastoral settings featuring several wooden trestles and historic farms.  One of the few remaining steam-powered passenger railroads in Washington, the Chehalis-Centralia Railroad offers Easter train rides for kids of all ages, along with other seasonal special events.  And, of course, the ride ends with a search for eggs hidden by the Easter Bunny and Chicken Little in the fields.
