LARHF was proud to host a booth at the 2018 Summer Train Festival at Los Angeles Union Station on Saturday, July 14. We displayed historic railroad and transit photos and sold our beautiful Route 66 Railway book.

Amtrak and Metrolink equipment displays.
Privately-owned rail cars from the golden age of train travel: 1940s streamlined California Zephyr cars Silver Lariat and Silver Solarium, plus lounge Utah and the National Forum from the Pacific Railroad Society.
