As our big summer trip this year, my dad and I decided to take a six day road trip across southern California and Arizona to hit a number of museums that have been on our respective bucket lists for some time now.
Orange Empire Railway Museum, in Perris, CA, near LA. We haven't been here in a very long time, so although it wasn't our first visit, 20 years made us effectively first time visitors. Both Paul and I are very active at the Western Pacific Railroad Museum, so it was a very interesting experience to spend the day comparing and contrasting with a museum of very much the same caliber of ours.
Overall, we had a good experience spending the day experiencing a new train museum. It was not the best train museum we have ever attended, but it was neither the worst, and "best" is a hard thing to qualify when each train museum does different things really well.
