What is there to do?

If you LOVE trains and history, then you might just love the Lomita Railroad Museum in California!

This popular museum is dedicated to the proud era of the steam engine, and complete authenticity is the hallmark of the museum, resulting in a rewarding journey through the history books! 

There are a number of real life pieces on display, including a Southern Pacific Railroad Steam Locomotive (1902-1960) and Tender. Nearby you can find a 1910 Union Pacific Caboose and a modern all-steel Santa Fe caboose. Pretty cool!

Kids can see up close a 1923 Union Oil Tank Car, as well as a 1913 Southern Pacific outside-braced wood box car! There is SO much learning and fun to be had!

Also at the Lomita Railroad Museum are fun events held throughout the year, and most are free admission too! You can ride the Polar Express over that festive period, or take part in the community afternoon with lots of kids fun!

So all aboard, the train is about to depart for a super cool family day out at the Lomita Railroad Museum, and YOU are welcomed to join!
