We came here by accident. We were looking for an Amish restaurant in the area and drive by here. It was open so we decided to go. We had a good time wandering through the museum amongst the massive trains. Took lots of pictures....Christmas present for my dad of some kind. People with kids would like this place. Across the...

We think the Strasburg Rail Road is a GREAT RIDE out through the countryside. The train is really nicely restored and very comfortable. Children will love it and so will the adults. A must to try if you are in Strasburg. We loved it.

My daughter and I really enjoyed our trip to the Strasburg Railroad. We decided to do the dining car and, although we really enjoyed the train ride, we will not be doing the dining car next time. The staff was extremely inattentive and the food was only mediocre with a large price tag. For the money we spent on chili... More

This is a staple in our travels to Lancaster County. Each trip is not complete until we ride the train. The people on staff and on board the trains are all so friendly and inviting. We've been on the open air cars all the way up to the luxury ride in the cushy seats which is a great experience too.... More

Put this on your list of "must dos" when visiting Lancaster, PA. You can get a cheaper rate if you get tickets to the museum across the street as well and then spend your wait time visiting the museum. The railroad has different cars for different prices. You can sit in plush luxurious seats for a somewhat higher price or... More

It was a lot of fun and very interesting even for older people. The children that were in the car with us seemed to really enjoy it, as well.

I was in town for the holiday and my mom suggested we check this out. They had a cute little gift shop, restaurant (just your average foods), and the train ride. I brought my boyfriend and my brother brought his girlfriend (all in our 20s). We all enjoyed it but once you've seen it, once is enough.

Everyone was smiles from the ticket counter to the conductor. I would recommend sitting in the First Class Lounge. Great experience and fancy comfortable seats!
