We knew it would be a short ride and it was...kinda a quick 45 minutes. Too bad it couldn’t do some sort of loop so you don’t see the same scenery twice and it’s the same scenery you see driving all around the area. To...More

We had a great time on our ride with the Strasburg Railroad. The train ride, the shop tour and the shops were great! I recommend to anyone visiting the area.

This was my second time (with different family members) but I enjoyed it as much. I prefer the lounge car because the seats are super comfortable and they swivel. I wish the ride were longer but understand why it isn't. It's worth supporting this railroad;...More

Train ride was amazing. Suggest you ride in open car. View is great. You ride through Amish countryside and see them at work and play. Only wish the ride was longer because we enjoyed it so much. The Museum was great. So many old trains...More

Yes, the train does change direction at the end of the line; however, in Coach and Open Air, you can flip your seat-back so that you are always facing the direction of travel.
