The Adventure Continues… Griffith Park Live Steamers
If you enjoy trains or 19th-century machinery, this episode of Visiting is for you! It’s not the first time Huell has featured model train enthusiasts; you may remember my post from October 2020 in which he visited with the Fairplex Garden Train in Pomona. I also couldn’t help feeling like the Walt Disney barn seemed awfully familiar — it appeared in an episode of California’s Gold called Barns, featured here back in March 2020. There’s definitely a lot of activity and movement at the Los Angeles Live Steamers Railroad Museum (LALSRM); it’s a bustling place on the weekends, with plenty of small trains and happy people!
Huell goes to Griffith Park to enjoy a day of riding the rails with the Los Angeles Live Steamers. Founded in 1956 by train enthusiasts for the purpose of educating people in railroad history, the club operates 7½″ gauge model trains for the general public from 11:00 am – 3:00 pm every Sunday. You’ll get a real kick out of these little beauties.
