Have a ride on a steam train, at Strasburg Rail Road, past farms and Amish neighborhoods. Select your car--from Victorian coach, to one of the luxurious lounges--or hop onboard the open-air car, with the best views of the surrounding countryside. If you ask, the train can stop for you at one of the two picnic sites, and you can have a picnic. Take a look at the dining tours as well, with food, drinks and entertainment on board. At the station, you'll find a souvenir shop--with train related gifts--and a children area--where kids can operate a pump car, run and climb in the train-themed play area, and more. Put Strasburg Rail Road into our Ronks day trip planning website and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

The trains are beautiful, the engines and even the "coach" class train cars are wonderfully restored. The conductors and engineers are more than happy to answer any questions your little one or a curious adult may have. Even the Stop Announcer engages the guests in a variety of train related activities making the entire experience one they'll remember and cherish.
My son is a huge train buff, and a trip to the Strasburg RR is always a fun adventure for our family. We've visited several times, and look forward to going back again. The trains are beautifully restored, the staff are friendly and pleasant, and the scenery speaks for itself. It's truly a treasure to have history preserved as Strasburg RR continues to do. Highly recommended!
