Thomas the Tank Engine!

Thomas the Tank Engine arrived in Strasburg, PA to thrill children and adults alike. The Strasburg Railroad served as host, with their rolling stock providing seating for people to ride toward Paradise, PA and back, through the surrounding countryside where the Amish have their farms. I took the following video showing Thomas pulling into the station, then backing out, and returning again. Take a look.

I was amazed by the number of children standing by the tracks, calling out to that little blue engine. In this age of electronic gadgetry, it was a joy to see kids interested in an old-time attraction like a steam engine. More footage of the steam trains at Strasburg and elsewhere will becoming soon. Keep an eye out here at The Bent Page.
