Free Locomotive Train Rides

By David Ball

“The Los Angeles Live Steamers Railroad Museum is a non-profit corporation that was founded in 1956. It was started by train enthusiasts for the purpose of educating people in railroad history and lore and also to further the avocation of live steam, gas-mechanical and electronic railroad technology.

They operate our 7½” gauge model trains for the general public to ride from 11 am – 3 pm every Sunday (weather permitting). The gate is open from 10:45 am to 3 pm. Train rides begin at 11 am. They also have extensive layouts for 4¾” and 3½” gauge model trains.

Passengers must be at least 34″ in height and weigh under 350 lbs. to ride. The Los Angeles Live Steamers Railroad Museum survives solely on donations by railfans who visit and ride the trains. Admission is free but be kind and give the suggested donation of $3.00.”

Every Sunday 11AM – 3PM (Closed on Rainy days)
