Experience America’s oldest short-line railroad and the golden age of steam railroading as you travel the tracks through Pennsylvania’s Amish Country. Strasburg Rail Road boasts one of the best views Lancaster County has to offer, and is home to museum quality, working, turn-of-the-century steam locomotives, freight cars and one of the largest fleets of historic wooden passenger cars in the world.
Founded in 1832, Strasburg Rail Road is a designated heritage site. With a 45-minute train ride, tours, shops, dining and more, Strasburg Rail Road easily accommodates your group’s tour schedule.
On board an authentically restored passenger car, a mighty coalburning steam engine pulls you past 20 working farms, our Amish neighbors and beauty as far as the eye can see. Travel when you want, how you want. Accommodations range from beautifully restored wooden coaches, First-Class cars, and open-air cars, and the Dining Car. Your group will agree that experiencing Lancaster County has never been so relaxing.
See historic buildings like the East Strasburg Station and Switch Tower, or go behind the scenes for a guided tour and see where trains are restored, repaired and refurbished. While you’re there, ask about Strasburg Rail Road’s connection to Hollywood for movies like Wild, Wild West and Hello, Dolly.
While in town, cross the road to visit the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania, home to a world-class collection of historic locomotives, and stroll through the quaint town of Strasburg.
