Mother's Day Dinner Train

Strasburg Rail Road

Be the real hero for mom this year and reserve tickets for the Mother’s Day Dinner Train at Strasburg Rail Road. This unique celebration features a traditional Lancaster County meal served aboard the Lee E. Brenner Dining Car. Pamper mom, plus the whole family can enjoy a scenic, 45-minute ride through the Lancaster countryside. From the authentic steam locomotive to the luxurious appointments of the vintage Dining Car, dinner aboard the Strasburg Rail Road is a memorable escape to the golden age of steam railroading. Dinner features baked turkey, fried chicken, and pineapple-glazed ham balls served with homemade mashed potatoes and gravy, freshly steamed green beans, Amish-style filling, shoofly pie or chocolate cake, and iced tea or lemonade. Seating is limited for this event to make room for private tables, when possible. Mother’s Day Dinner Trains are scheduled to depart at noon, 1 p.m., 2 p.m., and 3 p.m. on Sunday, May 8, 2016. The special dinner menu is available in lieu of the regular daily lunch. Tickets, which include the meal, are $10 under age 2, $25 ages 2-11, and $44 ages 12 and older. To ensure seating, guests are encouraged to prepurchase tickets online at or call 866.725.9666. Unsold tickets, if any, will be available at the station on a first-come, first-served basis.
