Strasburg Rail Road in Pennsylvania: All Aboard for a Ride on the Oldest Operating Railroad in America

Train lovers will literally be in paradise when they jump on board the oldest operating railroad in America. Located in Paradise, Pennsylvania, the Strasburg Rail Road takes you on a 9-mile, 45-minute trip through Lancaster County. 

Ride first-class, dining, coach or open-air cars while taking in the breathtaking views. This historic steam locomotive will take you through 2,500 acres of Amish farmlands. Back at the station there is a cafe, ice cream shop, gift shop and a pint-sized pufferbelly train for tots.

Strasburg Rail Road also hosts special events including an Easter Bunny train, The Great Train Robbery, wine and cheese train, Day Out with Thomas, and a Christmas train. It's wholesome fun for the whole family!

How fun is this?! My dad is a huge rail fan, so we grew up taking lots of trains (including from Illinois to Florida) and going to rail museums. Thank you for sharing this fun spot, Tiffany Zook !
Good times on the rails! 🛤
