What is there to do?

The Strasburg Rail Road was chartered in 1832 as a line to haul freight and passengers from Strasburg, Lancaster County to the main line in Philadelphia. Today, the Strasburg Rail Road is one of Pennsylvania’s leading family attractions and is home to museum quality, working, turn-of-the century steam locomotives, freight cars, dining cars, private cars and one of the largest fleets of historic wooden passenger cars in the world. Strasburg Rail Road also holds the unique distinction as being America’s oldest short line railroad.

The 45-minute train ride departs daily from Strasburg station. Passengers can choose to ride Coach, First-Class, Open Air or the Dining Car. Plus, ride on the miniature Cagney steam train, the authentic Pump Car, or take a behind-the-scenes tour to see steam engines being built, restored and refurbished. Strasburg Rail Road has a number of combo passes with area attractions such as Dutch Wonderland, Railroad Museum of PA and Cherry Crest Farms. The combo tickets help families experience multiple attractions for one price.
