  • They have about 6 trains but you can't go on any of them What value and interest is there for a child to walk around a high train where they do not reach above the wheels and can't go into the cars or...  more »
  • Our kids (4 and 10 months) loved riding on this train. The price is very reasonable. We went on a weekend and there was a longer then expected line. 
  • Been coming here for almost 50 years. It is such a great place for kids and grownups. Ride the 1/4 scale train (inexpensive) and planning in advance you can have birthday parties on the old time (non-...  more »

  • It's free and you can climb on trains. It seems that a lot of them are closed and you cannot go on them. I would take my kids more if there where more open trains.
  • Fun place if you like trains! Great for kids and adults! The train ride is relatively long so it's worth it. Not too expensive! Also, there are nearby trains to check out such as steam engines. It's no charge to view those. Good place to spend some time with the family!
  • One of Southern California's hidden gem for kids. It cost you nothing to go and visit and the kids can spend hours going from train to train. Very safe for families. You can but a ticket for a nominal price to take the Steamers Train around a loop that they have on the complex.
  • Travel Town Railroad has a huge selection of old trains. Quite a few locomotives and train cars. You can go up to the conductor's area and see all the instruments used for driving these machines. There is also a scale train that can take you around the property. Great for kids! The place could use a bit an update though.
  • I liked it great place to bring the kids and see old school trains. You can even get on them. This place takes donations as well. You can picnic here. I also caught a bulbasar here lol.
