We have been to this place many times over the years, and every time there seems like the first!... A neat place for young children or the young at heart! If you like trains, you have to check them out! Very reasonable prices for train rides! Very professional and courteous employees whom seem to enjoy their jobs! Very clean grounds!

Worth the extra $10 or so to sit in plush captain's chairs in the stylish lounge car, with its polished wood, stained glass and very friendly waitstaff service. Felt like I was on the Orient Express! The 4 miles from Stasburg to Paradise went so fast, traveling past gently rolling farmland.. The size and power of the steam locomotive is awesome.

I was with my friend and we were down the block at the casey jones restaurant and saw everyone with cameras and asked what they were doing? Someone pointed down the road and told us the old steam train is coming! So we waited and watched and this thing was impressive as it made its way down the track. We ended up going to take a ride. Watching this train come is was so nice,and you can watch them fill the coal and water before you leave. I would get your tickets early so you can watch all this. Best time is summer so you can ride the OPEN CAR with no windows so you can hear the train and it just gives you a whole different feel. They talk about back in time, and when you reach the end they disconnect the caboose,drive past you and reconnect to take you back. You can also get off near a picnic area and catch it at the end of the day. They also offer dinner for around $75 but you are only on the train 45 minutes so I would imagine they move things real fast. There is also a few little stores before you board the train or you can get something to eat at the Cafe, all basic burgers, hot dogs, fries... it was a nice ride.

Excellent little excursion in the countryside. Quaint little town surrounding the train depot as well as a huge corn maze park for families to enjoy. Strasburg Railroad area was very nicely set up and awesome employees.
