Trip Planner: USA / Pennsylvania / Lancaster County / Strasburg / Choo Choo Barn
See an array of model trains in action at Choo Choo Barn, home to a variety of tracks running through a recreated model of the local countryside. Head to the facility, housed in a classic Amish-style country barn, and marvel at 150 props and figures, all hand-built, as well as the 22 different trains that zip back and forth around the track. Look closely and you'll recognize many local landmarks in miniature form, including barns, railroad stations, and more. Don't miss watching the videos offered in the museum, which document the process of building the model trains. They will give you a bit more background information on the mechanisms at work.

Love this place!! SO much to see, such great detail! It gets dark every 10 minutes and "stars" light up the sky, and everything looks so different! We spent a good hour here walking around the set twice and pointing out different things to each other. They have 2 scavenger hunt lists for those needing more structure, but we just liked wandering and finding our own favorite things.
Very nice experience! We took our grandkids on a Friday morning, not very busy when we got there. We had to go around twice there was so much to see. Very inexpensive way to spend time with your family. Clean store, good parking and a very nice helpful staff. I absolutely recommend going here!
