#3 of 10 in Things to do in Strasburg
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.

  • Went there for lack of anything else to do. What a great surprise! Kids love this attraction! Adults are awestruck. The detail. The imagination. The coordination are all mind blowing. Looking for additional items for your own set? Go and shop! Very inexpensive, informative and educational. Daylight & night modes for exhibition. You won't be disappointed!!
  • What great place to visit for both young or old. It doesn't matter if you're into trains or not. There's a lot to see. Try the scavenger hunt as well for a little more fun!
