For more than 60 years, the mechanical department of the Strasburg Rail Road has been producing world-class work in the steam railroading industry.  The mechanical services department has over 250 years of combined expertise in steam locomotive construction, design and repair.

Properly repaired running gear, boilers, and appliances on your locomotive can make the difference between a successful, profitable season and one filled with headaches caused by delayed and canceled trains.  Once properly overhauled, a steam locomotive can last for many seasons with minimal expense, provided it is cared for and operated in a responsible manner.  In addition to repairing components, we also have the knowledge and expertise to design and build reproductions of any part of your locomotive.

The Strasburg Rail Road’s mechanical department will keep your equipment “on the road” generating revenue.
