In April of last year I got the chance to bring my friend Josh and his family to a place with great significance for me: The Strasburg Rail Road.
I’ve loved Strasburg since I was a kid. In fact, I can almost directly attribute my current railfan and modeling hobbies to monthly trips there when I was young. The spring is a great time to visit, and here are some photos from my recent trip.
The Strasburg Rail Road has recently (well, in the past 6 years or so) started increasing its freight business. Knowing how to put on a good show, they offer tickets to ride the (usually) steam powered morning freight runs. These tickets made a perfect present for my dad, who got me hooked on this stuff by taking us on monthly pilgrimages to Strasburg when I was growing up. These are the photos from that day.
