    This railroad has beautiful architecture, sadly when I visited I wasn't able to ride the train. But overall it was a great place to visit!

    Wonderful day spent at the railroad my kids loved it, nicely kept, great smiling faces! Only 50 min. from Hershey! The dinning train was great!

  • Layla G.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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!

  • Thomas G.

    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.

    Rochelle Coslow-Robinson · June 25, 2011

    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.

    Excursion trips take in Lancaster County's bucolic Amish farmlands, about 65 miles west of Philadelphia. Break up your trip with a stop at Groff's Grove picnic area. Read more

    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!

    such great weather to spend it indoors... break away from the traditional routines and take a train ride thru Amish Country... jump on board the Strasburg Railroad. Read more

    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.

    Sit back and relax as you enjoy a 45 minute "coach" ride to Paradise, PA and back. Read more
