On Saturday March 16th, we’ll visit the Orange Empire Railway Museum. We will meet at the Visitor Entrance at 10:00 am. I’ve been to Travel Town at Griffith Park but this museum appears to have more variety. There is no special event happening this day. I understand there is minimal food service available so you will want to bring lunch to eat on site if you don't want to leave for lunch. The weather should be good and there are lots of interesting things to see and photograph!
From the website: Explore the West’s largest collection of railway locomotives, passenger and freight cars, streetcars, interurban electric cars, buildings and other artifacts dating from the 1870’s. Ride streetcars, interurban electric cars, and trains on the Museum railway. Visit the Museum’s collection of more than 200 streetcars and railway vehicles to experience the early days of electric, steam, and diesel railway transportation in and around Los Angeles.
Normal Hours are from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. The Visitor Center and Museum Store are open from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM on weekdays, 9:00 AM to 4:45 PM on weekends. Trolleys and trains operate every weekend.
Access to the grounds and buildings is free. On regular weekends, an all-day pass to ride the trains costs $12 for ages 12 and up.
