Steam Train Ride Past Amish Farmlands of Lancaster County


Only the Strasburg Rail Road can take you directly through the heart of Pennsylvania Amish Country with a view of more than 2,500 acres of untouched farmland. Comfortably seated aboard an authentically restored passenger car, you will embark on a 45-minute, fully-narrated ride behind a real, operating steam locomotive. And, that’s just the beginning of this one-of-a-kind adventure at America’s oldest operating railroad.

Ride first-class, open air, coach, or choose to dine aboard the train in our authentic wooden dining car. You can also ride the train to our convenient picnic groves and recreational areas along the train’s route for mid-way boarding or unloading. Bring along your picnic basket or cooler and get off at either Groff’s Grove with swings, a merry-go-round, see saws, grills, and more or relax at Leeman Place, situated at the end of our line adjacent to the active Amtrak line.

Back at the station, get your wristband to enjoy our fun extras like the Pint-Sized Pufferbelly, a real miniature steam train that travels around our property; the Cranky Cars, hand-propelled cars for little ones; and our vintage Pump Car.

Don’t forget to come back to experience our special events held throughout the year.
