As we have done for too many years to remember we will once again be running our Easter Bunny Trains Rides in 2011. This year we have asked for an eight-car train to be run on April 16th from Wayne and April 17th from Glen Rock with departures at 9:30am, 12 noon and 2:30pm. This will give us 2160 seats to sell each day and 4320 total for the two days. Selling these trains out will give us most of the money we will need to complete the work on the station, which of course is extremely important.
As with every other year, our first order of business is to get the word out about the trains. So, starting the first week in March we will need to get volunteers out to put up the posters and signs. Please watch your e-mail for dates and times.
With our Internet ticketing system working so well, our need to be at the station to help answer customers’ questions has been reduced – but not eliminated. We will still be looking for people to man the phone on Tuesday and Thursday nights from 6 to 8pm and also on Saturday afternoons from Noon to 3pm. Any and all help will be appreciated.
On each train day we will need people to wear the four bunnies and four other costumed characters. Plus we will need eight helpers, sixteen car hosts, six parking / platform attendants plus three crew chiefs – a total of at least 41 volunteers each day. So if you or anyone you know would like to help please call the station at (973) 238-055 or write to firstname.lastname@example.org and say you want to volunteer.
