According to Urban Dictionary, an Easter Egg is  "A secret, hidden inside a video game, DVD movie" etc.

Google evidently placed a camera on the tender of a Strasburg RR locomotive in October 2015.  If you click anywhere on the track between Leaman Place and the Strasburg station you can "board" the tender and see a 360° view.

Here is a link to the view at the Leaman Place end of the run.

You can click on the little X to move forward, or turn 180° and click on the X to move in reverse.

That’s an amazing view! If you look, you can see it is ratchet strapped in place. The locomotive is Strasburg (Ex Great Western) 90.

That's cool!  If you advance down the track you can look into the cars of the train waiting on the siding.  I couldn't help notice that one of the coaches, #50 Grasshopper Level, was full of pinball machines.  I've never been to Strasburg - can anyone tell me about that coach?

i can’t find it but I thought I read recently that the pinball train never really caught on.  But I could be thinking of something else.

How far does the Strasburg rail go past Rt. 30? There’s a train car on the track past the Amtrak interchange. Why is the interchange track facing the wrong way? There’s no way a train of several freight cars can access the Strasburg with that train car blocking the track past the interchange. In 1985 and 1986 how did the special doubleheaded excursion train access Amtrak with the switch facing the wrong way? Was there more track past the switch for the train to clear the switch, then enter Amtrak? Also the business across the Amtrak tracks, is that closed or no longer using rail service? I think it was a lumberyard. Wasn’t there a freight customer on the Strasburg RR side north of Rt. 30?
