Strasburg Rail Road offers glimpse of work needed to get its massive locomotives running

 

On Fridays from May through September, Strasburg offers Hostling Tours — a behind-the-scenes look at how these steam-driven behemoths are prepped to pull the day’s passenger trains.

The term “hostler” — once used to describe groomsmen who tend horses — has since evolved to include those who prepare railroad locomotives for service.
