A very pleasant train ride through beautiful Lancaster county. We rode in the warmer months but I am intrigued by the coal stoves on board and would love to do a a winter ride some time.

The Strasburg is a wonderful place, but this review is specifically about the Wine & Cheese train with accommodation in the "President's Car." Let's begin with the train car itself: it is worth paying top fair. The car is a classic observation platform car with...More

It should be a good train ride for fall foliage. It's an excellent train ride to see farmlands in the fall, corn stalks, etc. It's a fantastic experience regardless of the foliage, one I highly recommend. :)
