Griffith Park Freedom Train in Los Angeles
One of the train
rides in Los Angeles' Griffith Park has featured a "Freedom
Train" for many years.
It has a paint
job very reminiscent of the 1976 American Freedom Train.
The train runs
on the mile-long Griffith
Park & Southern Railroad, not the Travel Town Railroad
(or the Los Angeles Area Live Steamers) on the other side of the
The train was
built by the All American Streamliner Co. of Los Angeles (18.5"
gauge) and first received its patriotic look in 1976/77.
