About the Eggsperience
Celebrate season of rebirth at the WW&F Railway and SeaLyon Farm. Board the Eggspress at Sheepscot station for a springtime steamtrain and wagon journey to a great Easter egg hunt, fabulous farmstand, horse wagon rides, fresh food, and more!
The Easter egg hunt will be set on the farm across 3 separate fields, divided by age: birth-3, 4-6, and 7+. Don’t forget to bring your own basket for the hunt!
Ticket price includes a historic steam train ride, wagon rides, farm admission with an age-appropriate egg hunt, horse drawn wagon rides, and parking at Sheepscot. (Please bring your own baskets for the egg hunt.) Refreshments and farm products are sold separately by SeaLyon Farm and their partners.
Unfortunately, due to the nature of this event, wheelchairs (and those with severe mobility constraints) can not be accommodated. While we love animals at the farm, household pets are not allowed.
Eggspress trains depart Sheepscot station (97 Cross Road, Alna) promptly at 10:00a, 11:45a, 1:30p, and will return to Sheepscot at 12:40p, 2:25p, and 4:10p, respectively. Note that the railroad cars are not heated, so please dress accordingly.
We look forward to seeing you on the narrow gauge!
Ride the Eastertime Eggspress in your very own caboose!
Bring your family (or small group) for unique ride on the narrow gauge railroad! Your group (of up to 15 people) gets exclusive access to the “little red caboose” on the WW&F railway during the trip to and from the egg hunt and other farmstand activities.
And yes, you can ride “up top” in the cupola (although adults will need to watch their heads!)
Cost is $315 (which includes the egg hunt for all children in your group and your party being seated completely separately from other passengers during the train ride.)
SeaLyon Farm is situated is beautifully situated amongst the rolling woods and fields of Alna just south of Head Tide and adjacent to the WW&F’s Top of Mountain station. Horse and tractor drawn wagons meet every Eggspress train to bring each group to the farm. Everyone will have the opportunity for an extended tour of the farm and countryside aboard a horse-drawn wagon while traversing to, from, or about the farm.
At the farm, children will be allowed to hunt the fields for eggs (divided by age birth-3, 4-6, and 7+.) Please bring your own basket for the hunt!
In addition to the egg hunt, activities and vendors at SeaLyon farm will likely include:
- Horse wagon rides from Mike & Ace of Woodfield Farm.
- Tasty food from The Wicked Tater and other select vendors.
- Jams, salsas, and lavender products from the SeaLyon Farm Store.
- Artisan chocolate, hand mixed spices, and medicinal rubs from Sugar & Spice Farm.
