Recently I was given the opportunity to join the Girls’ Lunch Out Blogger Weekend in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Immediately I was thrilled to join in because I have been dying to take the kids to the Strasburg Rail Road, Choo Choo Barn and The Amish Village. I have heard so much great things about visiting Lancaster but I just haven’t made it there yet-except for our quick in-and-out visits to Dutch Wonderland.
Information About the Strasburg Rail Road
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. Founded in 1832, 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 Pint-sized Pufferbelly 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 value passes including the brand new Summer Fun Pass, the Rail Baron Pass and the Day Pass.
