Strasburg the Oldest

It is a Strasburg Railway Day.  It is the oldest continuously operating railraoad in the western hemisphere.  It was chartered in 1832 and operates under its original charter and name.  The buildings and the water tower certainly set the stage for an historic heritage railway.  The countryside around the railway has Amish farms using horses for ploughing. It seems like an heritage area all round - a percentage of each train ticket is contributed to the Lancaster Farmland Trust.
