In 1957, destruction of the train tracks caused by a series of storms placed an immediate embargo on the carload freight. In 1958, on the verge of abandonment, the railroad was salvaged by a group of interested individuals and given new life as a tourist railroad.
Today, visitors are able to experience a steam train excursion through the heart of Amish country and a step back in time on a 45 minute round trip. Strasburg Rail Road has five working steam locomotives and 20 operating passenger cars and all the rolling stock and equipment is restored and maintained on-site.
