A colorful souvenir photo book that captures the excitement of what's in store for visitors when they explore the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania.

Nestled in the rolling hills and lush farmland of Strasburg, in beautiful rural Lancaster County, a collection of train buildings, tracks, exhibits, and historic railroad equipment makes up the sprawling complex of the museum, which has preserved and interpreted the commonwealth's rich railroad history for half a century. Photos and informative captions show the range of vintage railroad equipment on display, including approximately 100 locomotives and railroad cars spanning the mid-19th through late-20th centuries. Many smaller artifacts, including uniforms, tools, dining-car china, and more, round out the collection.

Whether visiting for the first time or exploring it again and again, this colorful keepsake book is a perfect souvenir of your time on the tracks.
