  • Actually operated on the Strasburg Railroad.
  • Is the oldest locomotive in our collection.
  • Is the official steam locomotive of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
  • Is a replica of the first commercial steam locomotive in America, and is closer to the appearance of the original than the original is today.
  • And yes, we slipped in a caboose just to see if you were paying attention! We have historic passenger and freight cars and fascinating other rolling stock on display.
