Lancaster County is *the* spot for train
If you like steamer train
s then you must visit Lancaster County. The Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania
has over 14 steam locomotives, 11 passenger cars, and a 1950's freight train on display. I was able to identify a few of the trains in the Microprose
game Railroad Tycoon
. Somewhere in Lancaster County you're also able to ride in the passenger car
of a working steam driven
train! You will roll by the countryside and see lots of Amish
farms. I was able to see a barn being raised by an Amish
When you're done visiting real trains, there are a few model train museums in the area including the National Toy Train Museum
. They have model train
s from the late 1800s to now.
