Los Angeles Railroad Museum
Experience the fun and lore of railroading at Los Angeles Live Steamers Railroad Museum in Griffith Park. Founded in 1956 by a group of train enthusiasts, they educate the public in railroad history and show live steam, gas-mechanical and electric railroad technology in actual operation. As you look around the facility, most everything you see, including the trains, were built by members.
They operate 7½” gauge model trains for the general public to ride from 11 am to 3 pm every Sunday (weather permitting), except for the Sunday before Memorial Day and the first Sunday in October.
All riders must be at least 34″ tall to ride (no infants in carriers or on laps), and weigh less than 350 pounds. Handicapped riders must be able to transfer to a straddle-type riding car, and be able to sit upright for at least 20 minutes. Animals are never allowed to ride.
