About 700 visitors turned out to enjoy a historic railway station’s second Easter Specials weekend.

The event was staged by Rushden Historical Transport Society at Rushden Train Station on Saturday and Sunday and proved to be a huge hit with young and old alike.

It was held for the first time in 2010 but was not held last year because Easter fell too close to the society’s biggest annual event, the cavalcade.

Society chairman John Sugars said: “The event went really well. Everyone was very happy and there was lots of fun during the Easter egg hunt.

“A lot of heritage railways put on events like this and we thought it would be a good way to encourage people to stay in Rushden over the Easter Bank Holiday as well as offering visitors to the town somewhere special to go.

“All of the children who rode the trains received an Easter egg and to see their smiling faces was wonderful.”

The winner of the Easter egg hunt won a large Easter egg which they received on Tuesday.
