The Strasburg Rail Road of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania excels at this exacting task.  On the "Road to Paradise," one can reenact a journey aboard  the gay excursion trains of the nineteen-oughts, rambling four and one-half miles through some of the most pristine rural countryside in the eastern United States. Here a high-drivered Pennsylvania Railroad Atlantic gets a wheel on a long consist of open-platform coaches on the Strasburg mainline at Groff's.  This is the epitome of American passenger railroading at the peak of its golden age-- a scene recreated almost daily on Strasburg rails.
