Strasburg Rail Road

About Strasburg Rail Road
Steam through scenic Lancaster County aboard America’s oldest operating railroad, where the first thing you can expect is an authentic steam railroad experience! Strasburg Rail Road has five working steam locomotives and a fleet of twenty passenger cars, including First Class, Dining, Coach, and Open Air, all beautifully restored and carefully maintained by a world-class staff. Our regular steam train excursion provides a 45-minute roundtrip through the countryside, while an audio commentary highlights interesting facts and history about the railroad and surrounding area. More than 2,500 acres of farmland are visible from the train, much of which is farmed by our Amish neighbors. The Strasburg Rail Road invites you to enjoy a steam train ride, stop for a picnic, enjoy railroad activities at the station, browse unique shops, or indulge yourself aboard First Class! Special seasonal adventures include Day Out With Thomas, Christmas Trains, Wine & Cheese events, and more!

We've visited Strasburg Railroad many times, since our oldest was three. We've returned each year to ride the Santa train. The railroad does an excellent job; a ticket gets you a ride on a Santa train, and Santa visits with each child. Live music and...More

On the last day before a well-earned winter break, the Strasburg Railroad was extremely accommodating to our party. We had a lovely lunch in the dining car which included Whoopie pies. Our two year old grandson enjoyed the train the most of any of us!...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.

The parlor car was $26. I would recommend purchasing the tickets in advance. Some days they are sold out on the “premium” cars.
