Casey Jones' Restaurant

Join us in the two original P-70 80-ton dining cars that once rode the rails of the Pennsylvania Railroad in the early 1900's. Whether your appetite is as big as John Henry or as small as a nugget of coal you won't leave disappointed. Come early for a window seat and watch trains leave from the Strasburg Rail Road station.
