Directions to the Railroad

June 2, 2015  NOTE: The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is hard at work improving many of the area’s roads and bridges, including several key roads that lead in and out of Strasburg. Currently, Village Road (Rt. 741) at the Pequea Creek is closed for bridge repair. Additionally, Hartman Bridge Road (Rt. 896) at the Pequea Creek has been reduced to one lane. PennDOT has posted appropriate detour signage. As you plan your next visit, please allow sufficient travel time.
