PBS SoCal Day where Kids Ride Free

On Saturday June 16th join PBS SoCaL as we celebrate our rail history with activities focused on everyone's favorite train, Thomas! Thomas & Friends is on PBS SoCaL Fridays at 11:30am and Saturdays at 5:30am. A day of FUN with real life steam engines and locomotives, Thomas & Friends Activities, episode screening and much more! The Main Line Train and Trolleys will run every half hour from
10am – 4pm. Plus it’s a great chance to get discount tickets for Day Out With Thomas for his fall visit to the museum.

Plus join Dad for a ride into the past on the Big Red Cars of the Pacific Electric. Although we operate selected PE cars throughout the year, this is the weekend when we have the largest group of them out to ride and photograph.  Again the newly restored 717 will be on display. Once again this year we'll also have the Southern California Traction Club on hand with their giant HO Scale model trolley layout.

Admission to the grounds is free! Regular prices apply for all day ride tickets on June 16th & June 17th ($12 adults, $8 children 5-11), however with proof of registration on PBS SoCaL Day, June 16th, Kids ride FREE (ages 11 and younger).
