Lomita Railroad Museum Locomotive

I thought I'd put up a couple shots from the Lomita Railroad Museum. The Engine here is number 1765, and is really cool to go in and explore. The locomotive is a true Southern California piece of history, as it was mainly used around this part of the state. Built in 1902, the engine was retired in 1958. The museum features several train cars as well. A couple of them, a boxcar and an oil tank, are across the street in a small park.

A reverse 3/4 view gives a better angle of the size of the train. The museum is hidden a a small neighborhood in Lomita.
