The Wiscasset, Waterville and Farmington Railway Museum in Alna will host its Easter Express Saturday, April 4, trains will depart from Sheepscot Station, 97 Cross Road, hourly from noon to 3 p.m.

Families can enjoy a visit to the museum, hunt for Easter eggs, and take a ride behind a 1904 vintage steam locomotive 10 from Sheepscot Station to Alna Center, where hundreds of hidden Easter eggs are waiting to be found, according to a news release from the museum. People are encouraged to dress warmly with jackets and boots.

To ensure that everyone has a chance to collect eggs, search areas will be divided by age: children 5 and younger will be in one search area, and children 6 and older will be in another. Each area for each train will have a golden egg. In the event that the golden egg for a trip is not found, a basket of goodies will go to the child who has found the most eggs.

Since Easter egg hunts are for the young and the young-at-heart, the normal child’s fare of $4 will apply to all, children 3 and younger are free.
