The museum is a beautifully recreated turn of the century passenger depot across the street and is filled with authentic railroad memorabilia. Climb aboard the 1902 Southern Pacific Mogul steam locomotive and the 1910 Union Pacific caboose on the station platform and experience the grand era of steam railroading. The museum is located in a quiet residential area, just one city block east of Narbonne Avenue.

Tours of the Museum and park grounds are given by knowledgeable staff members and are free with each paid admission.

We take reservations for group field trips to the museum, including pre-kindergarten and K-12 school groups, special needs organizations, and senior groups. Our tours last approximately 30-45 minutes depending on the group and the questions asked. We cover the history of our museum, our Founder, history, and information about our trains and their purpose. We have samples of coal and talk a little about fuel types and what was used during the operation of our 1902 Southern Pacific steam locomotive.
