Boys climb on a locomotive at Griffith Park's Travel Town, a transportation museum. Photo dated: April 16, 1954.; Charley Atkins, a Recreation and Parks employee, decided that a locomotive would make an attractive addition at the Griffith Park miniature railroad in the late 1940s, with hopes of creating a railroad park. A few years later in 1952, Travel Town was dedicated and continues to serve as both a free transportation museum and recreation center overseen by the Dept. of Recreation and Parks of Los Angeles.
