Outstanding examples of old and modern railroad locomotives and cars. Superb restorations. Great history on each displayed piece. Highly educational with realistic displays at each station. Wonderful for all ages. Give yourself a solid two hours plus to read all the information.

The Museum is rich with railroading history. We especially enjoyed the Steam Engine tour we took around the Strasburg area.We rode in the lounge car with huge comfy swivel chairs, a bar and small selection of treats.

Having been fascinated by trains all of our lives, my hubby and I spent about 3 hours here. The trains and their histories were worth the time. If you like trains, this museum is a must.
