||Travel Town was the brainchild of LA County Park's employee Charlie Atkins. In the 1950s, many local railroads donated steam engines to Travel Town, but over the years, the collection was put under the responsbility of those who didn't care about saving these artifiacts, simply allowing them to rust away. Today, things are vastly improved, as the city has changed Travel Town's focus from being a playground to being a museum.
