Shopping at the Strasburg Rail Road


Shop for the train lover in your life right here at our East Strasburg Station. Our three stores include two gift shops and a toy store, featuring a wide selection of gifts and souvenirs to create a lasting memory of your visit.

Our custom selection of Strasburg Rail Road souvenirs includes postcards, hats, T-shirts, mugs and much more. There is truly something for everyone.

If you know a little engineer who is a fan of Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends, our toy store offers a huge selection of Thomas-themed merchandise — books, apparel, toys, DVDs — and of course, WOODEN RAILWAYS! You’ll also find many other wooden railway items available — all compatible with Thomas. In addition, we carry several other toy lines including Disney, Breyer, Ertl, & Papo just to name a few. Boy or girl, we have something for everyone.

Hours of Operation

Although store hours may vary, the stores are generally open 1/2 hour before the first Strasburg Rail Road train departs each day it runs and close 1 hour after the day’s last train departure, February-December. (Exception: We are not open after any dinner train returns to Strasburg unless by previous arrangement).
