VISITORS of all ages have been enjoying train rides on the Easter `egg-spress' at Kirklees Light Railway.
The special Easter steam trains started running at the Clayton West railway on Good Friday and finishes today.
Special stops are made on the 50-minute journey from Park Mill Way, so that children can hunt for Easter eggs in woodland near the eight-mile track.
Their rail tickets are also put into the train driver's hat for a prize draw to win a large Easter egg.
The Easter event
is one of several special annual functions run by railway owners Brian and Doreen Taylor.
The couple have run the railway for 13 years and now want to sell it so they can retire.
Unfortunately, buyers are proving elusive.
Mrs Taylor said: "We want to retire. It has been for sale for a couple of years and we have had a lot of interest in the railway.
"But nothing has come to fruition yet."
So the couple are continuing to keep the four steam locomotives and one diesel train running.
Although the Easter event ends today, train rides will continue until Sunday.
The railway is open every Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 4pm. But between May 31 and September it will open every day .
The next special events will be two `Day Out With Thomas events, based on the children's books of Thomas the Tank Engine.
One Thomas event will be in June and the other in July.
Then there will be a Teddy Bear's Picnic themed train ride, running in August.
Tickets for the Easter train rides cost £5.50 for adults and £3.50 for children. Under-three travel free.
Rides are suitable for people of all ages.
