We had an enjoyable outing on the train. Sat in the first class parlor car and loved the decor. Nice 45 minute narrated ride. We will be returning with our 3 year old great-nephew to ride the train and get off at the picnic grounds for an outing in the spring.

Nice little 45-minute steam train ride but once you've ridden it little ever changes. Same old spiel on the intercom every year.

It has been 41 years since I have been here. We ordered our Parlor tickets online before we left NY. The rail car was beautiful and very comfortable. This 45 minute trip brought back fond memories of 41 years ago with my grandparents. I thought the price was well worth it as my children loved the ride.

This was a great thrill for my grandson, we went on the steam engine train for several miles up the track and back to the depot, lots of fun, they also have model trains to buy as well, very interesting place. we were there several years ago possibly five years.

We came to the area shopping for the weekend and noticed the train was running especially for the weekend. The trains are absolutely beautiful and restored to amazing detail. We took advantage of the special ride coupled w the railroad museum. Any rail fan or people just looking for something nostalgic should come for the ride. The oldest operating railroad... More

We went across the street to the Railroad Museum and bought combination tickets for the museum tour and a train ride. It was a beautiful time for a train ride. We normally come to the Thomas events but it wasn't that crowded. What a great activity to do with any train enthusiast. We can't wait to come back to see... More

We really enjoyed a quick stop here on our way through the area. We got some great photos and my son, who really likes trains, had a grand time. The sounds of the train were tough on the baby though.

My overall experience on this venue: amazing. We went during winter time with friends of ours and the children on a Santa Claus ride and it was very nice. Reservation process: It was very easy. We ordered our tickets in advance online from the Strasburg Rail Road website and redeemed them at the box office. Beware that their confirmation receipt... More

We've been taking advantage of what the Strasburg Railroad has to offer for YEARS, and we usually come, at least yearly. This trip, we came for Thomas and Percy. Thomas is a longer ride than the ride on Percy, but is a shorter ride than riding on the regular trains. We learned, this time, that while, as of now, Percy... More
