Orange Empire Railway Museum

I'm a model rail road enthusiast -- don't miss this stop. We were lucky enough to find a tour that was going on, and had a great docent. Large inventory of rolling stock, great renovations of old equipment.

Orange Empire Railway Museum - Streetcars

The Orange Empire Railway Museum possesses an extensive collection of LA streetcars from the 1950's and earlier, in various stages of restoration. Many working trains from different eras. A fun visit.
