about Strausburg Rail Road

When you visit Strasburg Rail Road, be ready for an authentic experience, relish an old real steam railroad. Do not worry, as you will not visit some simple replicas of locomotives and operating passenger cars, but find some actual real ones.

Strasburg Rail Road is actually the oldest still functional railroad. The very first operation dates back to 1832. Luckily for the tourists, this short line was salvaged and reconditioned, so now it can be a true attraction to the tourists.
