Railroad Museum of PA
Strasburg Railroad

Address:
PA Route 741 East, P. O. Box 125, Strasburg, PA 17579

The Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania is directly across the street from the Strasburg Railroad. Although we didn't do it, you can take a train ride on the Strasburg Railroad through Pennsylvania Dutch Country to Paradise, PA and back. The museum was right in the middle of farm country and it thought we were lost until the musuem just suddenly appeared.

Since the train was just about to come into the Strasburg station and we wanted to take photos, we visited the Strasburg Railroad first

One of the first things we saw was the miniature train, the Cagney Train. According to the Strasburg Railroad website, it is free to ride if you have a first class parlor ticket

The Strasburg station is very picturesque and I took some interesting photos before the train pulled into the station.

This is the Switch Tower. You are allowed to tour the inside.

The Strasburg Railroad is directly across the street from the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania. Here are some view taken of the front of the musuem from the Strasburg station.

I don't remember the last time I saw a Good Humor man dressed in uniform like the one in front of the museum.

Here are some photos of the train coming into the station:

Next we visited the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania

The day we went to the museum, they were having a model railroad show. One of the exhibitors said that each member made up one section of the layout and when they all got together for the show, they put all the pieces together for one big layout.

They were also having an art show, all train related of course.

The museum is right in the middle of farmland.

On the top floor of the museum is a reproduction of Grif Teller's art studio. Grif Teller was most widely known for painting a long series of calendar art for the Pennsylvania Railroad

As we left the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania, we saw a horse and buggy passing by.
