B&O Railroad Museum
Looking for Saturday family fun with your children? The best childrens museums in Maryland include places for kids like the B&O Railroad Museum, the College Park Aviation Museum, the Fire Museum Of Maryland, the Maryland Science Center and Port Discovery.
We’re marking a birthday of note in Baltimore this weekend. The B&O Railroad is 185 years old.
Don and Marty had “Coffee With” Bronson Pinchot. For People Are Talking, Ron Matz was talking about the B&O Railroad Museum’s birthday.
The model train collection bequeathed to the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum by former Mayor and Governor William Donald Schaefer will be on display for the first time at the B & O Museum’s Holiday Festival of Trains. From Thanksgiving through New Year’s, the Festival of Trains is on the museum’s 40 acres of history in downtown Baltimore and 60,000 to 70,000 visitors are expected. The B & O Railroad Museum will be decorated for the holidays and visitors can see the model trains, ride the merry-go-round, or travel with Frosty the Snowman on the One Mile Express, a half mile of historic track, the first
laid in the U.S.
An orange Union Pacific car. A maroon car from the New York Central Lines. A star-spangled Lionel bicentennial train. They once were prized possessions of one of Maryland’s most beloved politicians, the late William Donald Schaefer, and now they’re on display at the B&O Railroad Museum.
