Strasburg Rail Road: Explore Amish Country

Hop aboard this authentic coal-burning steam train and immerse yourself in an adventure through the tranquil Amish countryside. Explore Dutch heritage and miles of scenic farmland from a seat on a real steam train, from Strasburg, PA to Paradise and back. Tour the locomotive and passenger cars and get a glimpse of 20th century railroading up close.  An audio commentary provides interesting facts and history  about the railroad and surrounding Lancaster County.  You can also get off and enjoy old-fashioned fun at Groff's Grove or Leaman Place Grove along the route. Once back from your steam train journey, ride the pint-sized version, shop in the Thomas™ Toy Store and railroad gift shop or dine at the Trackside Café.
