OUR WOODEN RAILROAD CAR REPAIR SHOP
Our car shop specializes in the replication and restoration of wooden coaches and rolling stock from the 19th and early 20th century. We have the capability to work from the rails up, from design, truck, frame, brake and coupler work to fine millwork, decorative stenciling and hand lettering. We can perform consultative evaluations and estimates of the condition of wooden cars for restoration.
The Strasburg Rail Road is capable of complete restorations from the rails up on any equipment that can be transported to our facility. We work with a company that has extensive experience in rigging, lifting and securing railroad equipment for safe shipment.
