People tend to check in during these times:
America’s oldest short-line railroad and a leading tourist railway that operates museum quality, working, turn-of-the-century steam locomotives.
We took a 45-minute round-trip ride from Strasburg to Paradise, PA in one of the first-class lounge cars and had a great time. Comfortable seating, refreshments available, fun for the whole family.
The kids love it.
Wonderful time...must see
AMAZING!!! can not wait to do it again.
Ride through amish country
Lots of opportunities to safely watch from sidewalks and parking lot areas.
Ok, it's great if you have little kids and like to see a lot of corn fields and u did get to see the corn maze. But no amish I'm over it.
An awesome stop overall for kids and adults. Very well kept. Keep your eyes peeled for the farmer selling homemade root beer at the exit of the parking lot- delicious!
Waste of money imo
Awesome place. Very impressed with their quality. Get the open car!
Pay for the open car! This is a great activity for any Thomas the Tank Engine fans, there is a great TTTE shop down towards the end, plenty of parking.
Take the open car if you can, beautiful!
Lots of fun for both kids and adults.
Great fun, friendly service. Definitely get the dining car... Air conditioned vs coach.
45 min back to 1915
Find out about parking before you come... Sometimes it's confusing, particularly if it rains...
A great place for kids! Check site for details on "Day Out with Thomas" dates, wine and cheese trains and "Santa Express" trains! StrasburgRailRoad.com
One of the best railroad museums I've ever been to!
Great event for Thomas lovers! Make sure you arrive an hour before your train ride so you have plenty of time to park and board the train.
Get a group together and ride the train with Santa in December.
Get an early Thomas train or be prepared to be run over with strollers and large crowds.
Be prepared to park away from the area and take the school bus shuttle! No shade at the bus stop in the parking lot. Be prepared for huge crowds in the Thomas days.
ALL ABOARD FOR A TRIP TO THE PAST!
We love riding on the Strasburg railroad, the round trip takes about 45 minutes. The scenery is great. We recommend sitting on the station side of the train for the best view.
More enjoyable when Thomas is NOT here! The coach car has plusher seats and same great view as the open air cars, for $2 less per ticket. Pack a picnic lunch and disembark to eat or go into town!
Splurge on the open car, it's worth it but beware the begging that will occur from the kids on the ride back past Cherry Crest Farms and the Maize Maze.
