In August 2007 my wife and I took a trip to Strasburg, Pennsylvania where I was lucky enough to take the noon shop tour.
Here is a link to this wonderful railroad experience: http://www.strasburgrailroad.com/
This tourist railroad is working in cooperation with the Amish community in the area to preserve both ways of life. It is a completely private affair with no government grants to support its continued existence. If you haven't been here it is definitely worth the trip.

Notice the hand crafted workmanship of the car interiors
The interiors of the cars are beautiful.
Across the street is the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania
