What a fun place to go to!!! If you have even a small interest (like me) in trains, you will enjoy this place. There is no charge for entry (a donation is requested but not an obligation), which - being from Chgo where everything costs $$ - was a very nice surprise. A ride on a train - similar to that at a local zoo - costs only $2.50/adult; $2.00/child or senior. Well worth the cost!!

Travel Town, a part of Griffiths Park, in Glendale, CA has a superb collection of steam locomotives, passenger cars and work vehicles, including an old Red Car. And, thanks to Thomas the Tank Engine, a huge following of 2-5 year old fans. They rent out space for birthday parties and are ideal for young children. A child size train takes them on rodes areound the park and adult train fans will enjoy the collection.

If you have a kid that loves trains (I have two), well this is the place to go. It's free. They have tons of trains to look at, climb on, and even a small one you can ride ($2.50/person). I don't know why people don't come here more often. Lots of birthday parties on the weekend, but there is still plenty of space for everybody.

I was surprised that this was a) free and b) not completely swarming with kids on a lovely Saturday afternoon. This is located in Griffith Park and it a good way for train enthusiasts to spend an hour or two. There are a number of steam engines on display and some good hands-on activities for kids.

It's a lovely place to visit aith the kids. Many locomotives. You can climb in to two of them. A little indoor exhibit. A little play train track (you can get trains to play with at the gift shop - leave an ID). They have a little train running around the grounds. Two loops for 2.50$. was fun bet the other train in Griffith park is slightly more interesting.
We had a very good couple of hours.
