Located near Los Feliz Blvd and Riverside Drive at the South end of Griffith park, GPS Railroad occupies a location where miniature trains have operated since the late 1940's. The earliest record we have of a train operation begins in 1948 but these is some evidence that a train was there in 1946. The current ride was built in the mid 1960's. The Station, passenger loading structure, train barn, tunnel and bridge were all built at that time. The track is approximately 1 mile long. The track gauge (distance between the rails) is 18 ˝ inches which is almost exactly 1/3rd the gauge (56 ˝ inches) of standard, full-size railroads. This gauge is unique to our knowledge in the United States. The trains that run at GPS are 1/3rd scale reproductions of classic American trains of the 20th Century. The Freedom Train is one of the original trains that operated in the 1950's. It and the others are not exact scale models but rather provide the same look and feel as the full-sized trains in a smaller, more usable package.
