The Strasburg Rail Road was among the first steam-powered tourist railroads. Over a half-century later, it remains one of the most popular. This book features a comprehensive history of the Lancaster County, PA short line, with illustrations from its earliest years to present-day operations, with plenty of on-line scenes capturing the beauty of the Pennsylvania Dutch farm country through which it operates.
