The Rocks By Rail Easter Egg Hunt & Rutlander Train
Sunday, April 16th
The Rocks By Rail Easter Egg Hunt is back! The popular Egg Hunt has become the traditional start to the museums operating season.
A dozen eggs with names will be hidden all around the museum and along our railway line, all you have to do is pick up a form from our cafe, find the eggs, jot down their names, and take your form back to the cafe to claim your free Creme Egg for your efforts!
The Rutlander Train will also be in operation. Pay once and ride all day in one of our two passenger brake vans,
hauled by one of our historic steam locomotives.
The trip will take you from our platform and along the former minerals
branch line which once served the sidings of the ironstone quarries in
Visitors can also view our fleet of historic ironstone locomotives in the recently opened Simon Layfield Exhibition Centre which now houses the greater part of the museums collection. The Woolsthorpe Workshop is also open for visitors to see progress of ongoing locomotive restorations.
The Sundew Cafe will be open all day to provide hot and cold beverages and snacks.
