Trains & Troops 

This is an annual event held at the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania  in Strasburg, PA, and usually takes place in November around Veteran's Day.  In addition to the great train displays that are usually on exhibit, the museum invites reenactors and people with military related displays to set up for the weekend.  It is all U.S. reenactors as it is for Veteran's Day and you might see soldiers dressed in gear from the 1700's through modern day.  They also have bands perform patriotic music live at scheduled times.  The museum is located across the street from the Strasburg Railroad, so you can add a 45 minute train ride to make a day of it.  We had a great time this year and plan to make it an anual event for us.

 

The sports display is from our personal collection. All the gloves, balls, equipment...etc are stamped or marked U.S. and/or Special Services.  Some are also marked to the respective branch of service (Army, Navy, USMC).
