Lomita Railroad Museum

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.
