B&O Railroad Museum

I am absolutely fascinated by trains which is sort of a mystery since you could probably count on two hands the number of times I've actually been on a "real" train (metro does NOT count). The history of our country, the history of commerce in America, the history of education, science, politics, economy, etc., etc., etc., all had rail involved for decades!! Much of that past is preserved for us at the B&O Railroad Museum. I spent too short a time there yesterday and I MUST go back. Each train they had (and they had MANY) has its own story and the stories are amazing. There are very knowledgeable and passionate volunteers throughout the HUGE museum who can answer questions and provide information on almost all train things. I could have stayed for hours. Most of the facility is NOT air conditioned so it can be hot. As I said, there are many, many, many, many trains and cars both inside and outside. The Roundhouse is gorgeous and still functional. The "shop" is fascinating. It's a cool place to visit. I'll put more pictures up the next time I go back.

I've made the downloads free for these. Click on the photo, you'll be taken to the gallery where you can find a teeny, tiny menu at the top left rollover corner of the photo where you can click "Download."
