The Orange Empire Railway Museum’s mission is an all-volunteer organization that has been preserving Southern California’s railway history since 1956. The museum’s mission is to educate the public on the technology, history, and impact of the rail transportation industry in the West. Over 200 rail cars and locomotives, ranging from Los Angeles street cars to modern diesel locomotives, are preserved at the museum’s 100-acre site in Perris, California, which is open 363 days of the year.
