Post Pictures... CPRR & Ollie's Depot
I especially like the casual shots around Walt's Holmby Hills house, the red barn and the image of Walt making his caboose...
This brings me to an event that took place this Saturday the 17th
at Walt's Barn, care of the Carolwood Pacific Historical Society,
in Griffith Park (on Zoo Drive off Forest Lawn Drive).
First a few interiors of the barn and a few layouts of Walt's Carolwood Pacific Railroad. It is certainly worth visiting if you are interested in Walt's history. There are also plenty of Ward Kimball and Ollie Johnston memorabilia on display. How about becoming a member of this worthy organization?
The event was the inauguration of Ollie Johnston's Depot at the Carolwood Society's location on the grounds of the Southern California Live Steamers club. Here is the depot from the front, a side shot, and a group photo of all the folks who made it possible. Ollie's family was not able to attend, but I was happy to see Jeanette Thomas and her son Ted (co-director of "Frank & Ollie" and "Walt and El Groupo")!
