Coopersville and Marne Bunny Train
April 1, 2, and 8, 2023

The Easter Bunny will be riding the Coopersville & Marne Railway, joined by a cast of characters right out of some of your favorite nursery tales; along with a few you may not be familiar with before now. But no matter what they will be entertaining passengers of all ages as our vintage train makes its 90-minute journey to Marne and back.

Our Coopersville & Marne Railway train features century old coaches pulled by a 1950’s era locomotive. As the train travels to Marne and back it will be following a route first outlined in an 1848 charter for the Oakland and Ottawa Railroad. The first trains traveled this route in 1858. Today you can travel a portion of that route while enjoying the Easter Bunny’s shenanigans.
