This is not a large museum, but it is very enjoyable and has plenty of interesting stuff, especially for kids.

Haven't been here in years, it's not huge so it won't take up you whole day to see every thing. If like steam engines this is the local place to visit.

This was our first visit to this nice little railroad museum. It's not the big railroad museum but it is real nice. There is a steam locomotive, freight cars, hand car, two cabooses, a water tower, and a railroad station with exhibits. The price isn't too much and you can spend several hours.

The volunteers that manned this little museum are precious. They will have the answers to all your questions about the history of this place.

I made a trip to Lomita just to see the Railroad Museum after it was mentioned in the AAA's WESTWAYS magazine. This is a very small museum that tries to be much more than it is. I was surprised at how small it is. There is an attractive train depot that serves as a small museum and gift shop. Outside... More

This was my third visit to this small railroad museum near San Pedro. It's not the biggest railroad museum, but it has big dreams. The price isn't too much and you can spend an hour or two. There is a 2-6-0 type steam locomotive, two cabooses, two freight cars, a hand car, wagons, a water tower, and a Victorian style... More

This little museum is tucked away in a small residential area in Lomita, on the PV peninsula. There are 5 train cars in total (if my memory is correct): two cabooses, one tanker, one box, and one steam engine. Visitors can walk through one of the cabooses and climb up into the steam engine. There is also a small museum... More
