My projects, hobbies, interests, whatever.

Travel Town, Los Angeles, CA

Travel Town is owned by the City of Los Angeles and as they say in their literature it was supposed to be a petting zoo for trains. They have trains, cars and an N scale train layout. It’s a little depressing that many of the locomotives and coaches are in pretty poor condition… …but it’s still a pretty neat museum. There is a really beautiful structure built over some of the trains that is representative of a train station. It offers some great opportunities for over-the-top photography of very impressive machinery. So I took lots of photos and had fun with them.

The complete photoset is here

  1. Is it close to Griffith Park?

    I wanted to visit it but I didn’t get the chance yet.

    It is in Griffith Park just west of the L.A. ZOO off the Ventura Fwy. I added the geotag info to the photos so… If you click on one of the photos it will bring you to Flickr. If you look at the info to the lower left of the photo and click on map you will get the exact location of the park.
