Epping Ongar Railway

Bertie Bunny will be leading what is probably the longest Easter egg hunt in Essex from March 25 to 28. It will run the length of the railway track from Ongar through to Coopersale, which is the equivalent of 131,579 eggs placed end to end. Children will get clues to help them find the eggs and any child who completes their egg sheet is entitled to a special Easter prize. Look out for the Easter Bunny who will be out and about the stations and maybe even aboard some of the trains as well as facepainters and the Bunny Hop disco in a train carriage on Platform 3.
