Lomita Railroad museum is planning to expand. The drawing below
shows the current museum and the proposed expansion when complete.
Expansion of the museum will allow us to showoff the many railroad
related artifacts that we have in storage waiting to be enjoyed
by the public. The expansion will provide educational benefits
to all who visit the museum and is sure to bring many return
visitors. Plans include everything from a library to a small
auditorium, a in house railroad club to many hands on experiences
for all. Use the picture below to learn more about each of the
items in the picture (More information will be added to each
item over the next couple of months).
Our first expansion project was to build a 35 foot tall water
tower (click on the water tower below and see the construction
pictures) adjacent to our locomotive. This project was completed
in 2001. Water towers were very important to the steam railroading
era, this new feature will help visitors learn more about this
The museum needs your help with its expansion. We offer many
benefits to all who donate, from the individual to the large
company. Every contribution (time, money or artifacts) received
is important to us.
