Did you know railroading was a principle occupation in Strasburg between the time of the Reconstruction and World War !!?

Come see some of the tools used in railroading tasks.

View the "technology" of those day: telegrapher's key, an alligator-bracket telephone, and passenger arrivals bulletin board,etc. In the early 1930's, 2 Sunday excursions arrived in Strasburg - one from the East and one from the West.

See how messages were "delivered" between the passing train engineers and the station agents when there was no scheduled stops at the station in Strasburg.
