All Aboard! A Visit to the Los Angeles Live Steamers in Griffith Park
If you have a kid or know someone with a kid under the age of 10, chances are you've spent some time at Travel Town in Griffith Park. But right next door is The Los Angeles Live Steamers, which is open for the general public to ride from 10:45am to 3pm most Sundays.
Walt Disney's Carolwood Pacific Railroad "Barn" is there, as are a Santa Fe Steel Caboose, Southern Pacific Steel Caboose and Union Pacific Steel Caboose. Steam, diesel and electric locomotives ride down the 1 1/2 mile track, through tunnels, old West re-creations and more. Riders even pass directly by Travel Town.
During the second half of October, a "Ghost Train" experience takes riders of all ages through a spooky course.
The railroad was established in 1956. Suggested donations are $3. Some pics from a recent visit with the Blogger Kids:
