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. Put Choo Choo Barn into our Strasburg travel route planning site to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Strasburg.

  • Wife and I took two of our grandsons to the Choo Choo Barn. This place is amazing. So much attention to detail in this setup. We walked around it 4 times to enjoy the fine work of this display. Could have spent more time but had other things to see that day.
  • An awe inspiring display in miniature like you've never seen before! The attention to detail in this mini-masterpiece had us come back twice in the same day! My favorite part is the Amish barn raising scene! A great time for young and old run by a friendly staff. A must see if you are in the area.
