All Aboard, Thomas the Train


Searching for your perfect home in Lancaster? If you are curious about homes that are currently on the market, our website is a great spot to start your search!

Is there a Thomas the Tank Engine lover in your family? If so, make their day by taking them to ride a real-life Thomas the train at the Strasburg Rail Road

This summer, on select days, you will have the chance to board this famous train through the beautiful countryside of Lancaster County. It is a 45 minute train ride, pulled by the fully operational tank engine, Thomas!

For the parents benefit, Thomas’ seats have been beautifully restored to mimic the Victorian era coaches. They are gorgeous!! If you go on a warm Summer day, you will even get to experience the fresh air from the train with the windows opened.


For $25, you can ride Thomas and have access to all Day Out With Thomas activities at the Rail Road. Some of this includes a visit with Sir Topham Hatt, play pods, dance parties, and more. You will also have the chance to take pictures with Thomas (& friends).


Dates for the 2022 season are as follows:

  • April 29 – May 2
  • June 17 – 20
  • September 16 – 19

Note that tickets must be purchased in advance, not onsite.

Did you know Thomas the Tank Engine talks? When he rolls into the station, Thomas has a few words to say to everyone gathered at the platform. So instead of watching Thomas on TV, have your family experience actually riding on board Thomas’ tank engine! Your kids will LOVE this activity this summer.
