The train will be used for excursions from the town centre from 2pm till 5pm on Saturday 30th March, Easter Sunday (31 March) and Easter Monday (1 April).
Railway Chairman John Wilson said children passengers will receive a special treat from a special guest who’s bounced into the station for the Easter weekend. He added: “You’ll be greeted by the Easter Bunny who’ll be hopping with joy to give them their Easter Eggs.”
“If you bring your camera you just might get a photograph of this elusive bunny with your child!
“And as well as fun for the children, mums and dads also get the chance to experience rail travel at its most traditional.”
Refreshments will be served all day onboard a buffet carriage at Inch Abbey station, car parking is free at both Downpatrick and Inch Abbey and you can board at either station.
