August is Toy Train Month at the Railroad Museum!

August is Toy Train Month at the Railroad Museum!

California State Parks and the California State Railroad Museum are proud to recognize August 2015 as Toy Train Month, an annual celebration that focuses on the crowd-favorite Thomas W. Sefton Gallery and “Small Wonders: The Magic of Toy Trains” exhibit.

In recognition of Toy Train month in August, an entirely new selection of Buddy “L” toys – never before displayed at the Museum -- will be introduced as part of the “Small Wonders” exhibit.  The special items added to the exhibit will include a Model T dump truck, fire truck, lumber truck, cement mixer, toy boat, toy airplane complete with its hangar, and a four-motor “air cruiser.”  With a few exceptions, these collectibles were manufactured in the late 1920s and early 1930s which are considered the classic years of Buddy “L.”  Plus, one very rare item -- a late 1920s vintage Buddy “L” coach (bus) with gold gilding -- will be on special display for one month only to protect it from fading.
