Walt Disney's Train Barn

Open the third Sunday of the month only, this was the barn Walt Disney used at his home in Hombly Hills for his backyard train. When the property was sold in 1998, the barn was recovered and moved to the Los Angeles Steamers museum. Entrance is on the east side of the property, separated from the museum itself.
