Default B&O RR Museum

From a recent visit to the Baltimore & Ohio RR Museum in Baltimore, Maryland. The museum is housed in a restored round house which was used to service and repair wooden passenger cars.

Jehan,

Nice photo's. I particularly like that roundhouse. Looks like there is loads of history there.

I'm a RR history buff and lately in my area of the world, I've seen Mr. Van Horne's railway private car, he used when he was supervising the building the Canadian Pacific Railway, through Western Canada in the 1880's. This was perhaps the most significant railway built in Canada as it did a lot to unite the country after confederation in 1867. Got many pioneering settlers out to the prairies.

Also a '40's Packard 7 passenger sedan used as a railcar for the CNR.

Les

Any more photos from that museum ?

Jehan,

thanks for posting these pictures. Sure wouldn't mind seing that locomotive, as it is, or restored.

Thanks Fred! I used the 12-24 F4 to try to get some different perspectives.
