I was in LA last week and stopped in Griffith Park to see the Train town collection. All volunteer with a nice variety of California related railroad engines and equipment.  
 
Here is a rarity that I was surprised to see. An EMD model 40 industrial switcher from the 1940's. It is named after the founder Charlie Atkins.

Like an SW cab dropped on a 44 tonner.

Lots of steam engines. - WP is a favorite of the kids since they can sit in the cab.

the name is actually Travel Town. ( I'm getting old)
 
For the electric fans they have an original PE freight motor from the early 1900's.
