No, it's not Christmas in July again. Today's focus is on the Lomita Railroad Museum. Built in 1966, this museum houses several train cars, locomotive and Tender, and a water tower. The main building is a reproduction of the Boston and Maine's Greenwood station in Wakefield Massachusetts (Moved to, then burned at Pleasure Island, one of my favorite "lost" amusement parks).
Another view of the museum. I took this photo a few years ago (Pre digital camera), and the wall to the right is no longer there. Now the Irene Lewis park sits where there was once a vacant lot. This museum is an example of the simple treasures many communities have which makes them so unique and special.
