Enjoyed a two round trip ride aboard the railway and enjoyed the scenery, seating, and guests. But, it not cheap and the ride is too short..., just a notch or two above a park ride at an amusement park. Just getting settled-in when it stopped. Wished for a two hour trip, but rail line does not accommodate this option.

Took the coach class train, the ride itself was fine. There were carolers and a a trumpet-tuba duo in Victorian garb. Disappointed that the first class tickets were completely sold out through the end of the year but it didn't say so on the website. The photos that they take on the train cost extra. The toy they promise to... More

I have a one year old and a six year old, and I knew the trip was going to be great when their eyes lit up as the steam locomotive pulled into the station. We chose the train that Santa visits. The tickets are relatively cheap compared to many Christmas events. It's not just Santa on the train. You will... More

I was there with my children, specifically for the "Day with Thomas" event. We drove in from Beaver County for the day, and did the total package (ride on Thomas, Percy, and another regular train). I have never visited for anything else, so I cannot comment on those items, though I believe that they host a number of events for... More

It's a lovely experience to take the short Strasbourg Rail Road. You step back in time and relax and enjoy the scenery. You can get on and off at the various stops which makes it convenient. It's for all ages and affordable. I love doing the train ride!

The Thomas the train adventure was very cute and totally enjoyable. The rail staff were great, and the conductor announce my grandsons birthday to everyone in the car. The shops were very nice and even on a very cold and windy day the time was well spent. We all had a great time.
