Day out with Thomas!
I absolutely love this place! I’ve come here for years. My parents brought me several times growing up, I brought my older children when they were about 11 and 8 back in 2011 and now I brought my little ones, 3yr old twins and 2 year old here for the Thomas the Train weekend. THEY LOVED EVERY SECOND OF IT!!! It’s sad to see some unfavorable reviews, and I get it looking at the train cars over at least 20 years, I’ve visited nature takes its course, but during this stay it’s obvious with the new owners they are updating a lot. I stayed in the baggage car this time and you can tell the whole front was redone. The back needs a lot of TLC, but their fixing it slowly but surely and I’m so happy to see that. The inside was perfect. All the services I needed were delivered accordingly. We had a wonderful stay. Kids can be picky with food but not for fun and an unforgettable experience like this!! I like look forward to future stays, as long as you are open I will come and recommend it to everyone. It’s a unique experience, and it’s fun, people need to lighten up, no bed will be perfect no curtin will be just right no service will always be perfect for adults, but my kids are more then happy and get to see Thomas and Percy go by every few minutes, their happiness will always override mine. They love trains and to sleep in one and be by the station made their world! Plus I love the goats, pigs and horses here, for the petting zoo. the one goat is a doll, the one with the horns!!

A great family experience ~ many memories made!
We brought our 3 1/2 year old twins here for a long weekend to do one of the “Day Out With Thomas” events and had a great time. Lots on premises for kids ~ movies in the barn at night, petting zoo (bring quarters for animal feed), playground, buggy rides, Casey Jones Restaurant on site, gift & ice cream shop, the Toy Train Museum right next door, and more!

For families and train nerds
Keep in mind that the people who stay here are either train nerds or children. That being said, don't expect a 5 star hotel. There a lot of things to do at and around the hotel. And remember that Lancaster is surrounded by dairy farms so most of the time you will smell manure.

Review of Red Caboose Motel
The personnel were friendly and helpful. The model train setup in the main building was a nice touch as well as the observation tower and petting zoo. It was very convenient that, right outside, there was a pickup point for an Amish-style carriage ride. It was fun to stay in an old caboose for the night. The only negative I saw was that the cabooses looked like they needed some new paint.
