The Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania is the perfect setting for boys and girls involved in scouting to earn badges in railroading, working with historic artifacts and model trains. All requirements are fulfilled in a single day.

Arrangements may also be made to ride the Strasburg Rail Road after the program concludes.

The train does not run January through mid February.
