Lancaster County is *the* spot for train enthusiasts!

If you like steamer trains 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 community!

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 trains from the late 1800s to now. was used to augment the memory from my childhood.
