Lomita Railroad Museum is dedicated to the incredible era of the steam engine, and not only do they ensure complete authenticity within their exhibits that explore the rich railroad history, BUT they also have actual locomotives on display!
Kids can come up close in person to a Southern Pacific Railroad Steam Locomotive (1902-1960) and Tender. Nearby stand a 1910 Union Pacific Caboose and a modern all-steel Santa Fe caboose, as well as a 1913 Southern Pacific outside-braced wooden box car.
How amazing is that?
The Lomita Railroad Museum is the kind of place that you can not only learn about how these locomotives operated in their day, but how they were brought to the museum AND you can spend time in some locomotive cabs and see what the engineer's view was like!
Use those imaginations kids - can you feel what it would have been like to be a train conductor over 100 years ago?
In addition to the locomotive displays, the Lomita Railroad Museum host events across the year, from family-friendly afternoon teas, so seasonal fun like Santa and the Polar Express!
So steam your way into your next family day out, and choo choo choose to have a loco-tastic exprience at Lomita Railroad Museum!
