Full steam Adventures await families at the Strasburg Railroad! Just over 2 hours from Washington DC, the Strasburg Railroad offers family fun along with the history, science and technology of steam engines. Located in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, the Strasburg Railroad is located near several family adventures including the Amish Village and Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania. At the Strasburg Railroad passengers will enjoy an authentic steam train ride through the Amish countryside to Paradise, PA, 4.5 miles east and 4.5 miles returning west on the same track. Passengers have the opportunity to disembark and enjoy old-fashioned fun at Groff’s Grove or Leaman Place Grove, convenient recreation areas along the railroad’s route for mid-way boarding or unloading April through October. Before or after your ride, the Fun Extras at the Station include shops, playground, Cranky Cars, Pump Car and Pint-Sized Pufferbelly (open seasonally). SRR is restoring its J-Tower, where eventually visitors will get a bird’s eye view of the railroad.
