For today's Tuesday #TrainTalk, let's take a look at the replica Maryland and Ohio Coaches! In 1830, Baltimore carriage builder Richard Imlay built six coaches for the B&O Railroad to use for early trips from Baltimore to Ellicott's Mills (now Ellicott City). The Maryland and Ohio coaches currently on-display at the Museum are replicas created for the 1927 Fair of the Iron Horse. During the Fair, these replica coaches were featured in a pageant of transportation history, pulled by the B&O Atlantic.

Visit the B&O Railroad Museum today to see these replica Imlay coaches together with the Atlantic, just as they would've appeared in 1927!

Id like to purchase a jacket, preferably high visibility, with B&O logo, light weight, and waterproof for use with my association with two tourist railroads, the Stewartstown and the Ma & Pa. Kindly respond with cost , availabiliy and location. Thank You,
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oqJYXMezxTw&t=211s Just watched this DVD by Charles Smiley Videos MOUNTAIN GRADES OF THE B&O: A CSX STORY Available at www.trainmovies.com MOUNTAIN GRADES OF THE B&O Model Railroad News: “What does it take to make a great train video? Watch a few from Charles Smiley and you will know. Smiley does impeccable research and blends it with maps, graphs, charts and beautiful images. There is a defined theme throughout the video and the result is a DVD you will watch again and again. He takes superb raw material and turns it into a masterpiece!”
Thought I would share these pictures of the B&O tunnel during construction, Mt. Airy, Md. I have the originals & each photo measures 6" x 8 ".
My granddaughter in front of Allegheny 1601 at The Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn. We have a similar picture of her mother taken at about the same age in front of #1603 (or is it 1605) at the B&O Museum taken about 29 years ago.
Even a two year old can appreciate that awesome domed ceiling!

The Birthday Bash was wonderful on Feb. 27. The Restoration Tour of #51 was superb. We had an extra benefit. A gentleman in the group, accompanied by his sister, was extremely knowledgeable about the engine, so Jeremy handed the mike to him and asked him to speak to us. At the end, the gentleman pulled a family heirloom out of the plastic bag he was carrying. It turns out that he and his sister are the grandchildren of the first engineer to operate #51 when it went into service. He had brought with him a framed copy of the B&O Magazine of December 1943 featuring his grandfather in the engine on the cover. They were happy to allow us to photograph them.
Congratulations to The B&O Railroad Museum on the restoration of America's first streamliner diesel locomotive B&O Engine 51. Project Manager Jamie Partridge and the many volunteers put in countless hours and did a magnificent job! A true labor of love! My Grandfather B&O Engineer James Banks was honored to do the first run in 1937. Shown are my Grandfather James Banks as engineer and my Father Harry Banks, age 10 in the cab of B&O Engine 51. Photo taken at New Castle, Pa . 1937. Again, congratulations to The B&O Railroad Museum on an amazing restoration project.
