#TrainTalk: Originally built in 1900 for the Hocking Valley Railway, the C&O No. 409 was transferred to the C&O in 1930 as the result of a merger. It was at this time that the car was outfitted with two partitioned passenger sections, likely to provide segregated seating for African American passengers. Railroad segregation remained a paramount issue in the struggle for Civil Rights for years to come. Learn more about the No. 409 and railroad segregation today on our "From Slavery to Civil Rights" tour, today at 3 PM.

#TrainTalk: We know it's chilly out there, but on your way from the Roundhouse to the North Car Shop, be sure to take a moment to check out the C&O No. 725! Built in 1930, No. 725 was part of a new line of passenger coaches called "Imperial Salons." These luxurious train cars featured upholstered swivel bucket seats and tables that could be dismounted from the wall. No. 725 was the first of thirty coaches placed in service on the Sportsman, a premier C&O train operating from Newport News, VA to Detroit, MI.

The John Hancock was built in 1836 by Ross Winans and George Gillingham at the Mt. Clare shops, now the grounds of the B&O Railroad Museum. The Hancock's design improved upon that of its "Grasshopper" type predecessors, the York and the Atlantic, with the addition of a covered cab for the engineer (a B&O first), and dual-powered axles. After its retirment from service in 1892, the Hancock was sent to the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago.

#TrainTalk: Imagine whipping up meals for a car full of passengers in this small kitchen on a moving train! This is the kitchen on the B&O No. 1961, a self-propelled passenger Rail Diesel Car (RDC) built by the Budd Company in 1956. That year, the B&O would debut its Daylight Speedliner - a train of three RDCs that ran from Philadelphia and Washington to Pittsburgh.

#TrainTalk: Check out these photos from before and during the restoration of the Western Maryland No. 236 - an F7A locomotive built in 1952 by the General Motors Electro-Motive division. The F7 and the other diesels of its line proved the efficiency and reliability of the diesel electric locomotive in road service and ushered in the end of steam on many railroads that purchased them.

#TrainTalk: By 1842, the B&O Railroad had reached the base of the Appalachian Mountains, leading to an increase in eastbound coal shipments. Prior to the implementation of B&O No. 23001 and 23002, coal was hauled in wooden gondolas. "Pot Hoppers," like No. 23001 and 23002, were tapered at the bottom so that coal could be dumped on an open trestle, and offered improved capacity over their wooden counterparts. You can see this pair of Pot Hoppers for yourself in the Museum's Roundhouse!

Happy New Year!
I just want to see the holiday of trains layout which sounds amazing, but NOT attend a specific event (like breakfast or ride a train..)and I cannot find on their site where tickets for basic admission can be purchased.. yet it says there is an admission cost for the museum. Do you just purchase on site?
Can you identify this tool (used on the railroad)? More details as you click on the photos.
Can someone give me some information on this sign.Do you have one in the museum and just how old it is.
LOCOMOTIVE STAR PROFILE: B&O RAILROAD #25 “WILLIAM MASON" Several locomotives from the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum in Baltimore, Maryland, have made appearances in films over the years. Locomotive #25, a 4-4-0 built in 1856 by the Mason Machine Works in Taunton, Massachusetts, has been their “star” for more than 60 years. Number 25 was one of several older locomotives saved and stored by the railroad. In 1927 the B&O celebrated its centennial with “The Fair of the Iron Horse,” a 23-day pageant featuring a procession of various locomotives that was staged in Maryland. The railroad restored its older locomotives to operating condition and built replicas of other equipment. Number 25 received a new boiler at this time and was given the name “William Mason” to honor its builder. In 1953 the railroad established the Baltimore & Ohio Transportation Museum at its Mount Clare Shops in Baltimore, Maryland, which became the independent, non-profit Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum in 1990. The movie career of the still-operable #25 began in 1956 with Walt Disney’s “The Great Locomotive Chase.” It starred as the Western & Atlantic Railroad’s “General.” This was followed in 1957 by “Raintree County” — another Civil-war drama — where it powered the Lincoln funeral train. The locomotive was brought out of another retirement and rebuilt again for “The Wild, Wild West” — a 1999 big-budget reimagining of the 1960s Western television series about the adventures of special agent James West. The railroad scenes were shot in Idaho and New Mexico. Number 25 is seen in one of the photos that accompany this essay on the Camas Prairie Railroad in Idaho. Two passenger cars were built on the frames of former refrigerator cars. They are now owned by the Fillmore & Western Railway in California and have been used in other films. They are seen in storage at the yard in Fillmore. Number 25 retained its 1999 movie paint for several years. It was steamed up occasionally for special events and appeared in the movies "Tuck Everlasting" (2002) and "Gods and Generals" (2003). The locomotive was last under steam in 2012. A multi-year restoration project returned the locomotive to its as-built appearance. It can be seen in the Mount Clare Roundhouse. The Baltimore & Ohio equipment will be featured in our upcoming “Hollywood’s Railroads, Volume Five: Locomotive Stars.” Learn more about trains used in motion pictures and our books at http://www.CochetopaPress.biz/ and https://www.facebook.com/hollywoodsrailroads
Is a restoration of B&O#5300 possible?
Howdy...I tried the direct links for the museum archivist and haven't heard back yet so I thought I would post this here. We are doing research on these converted boxcars and was hoping to get more information on them. Any help would be appreciated. Joe D MTL>
🚂23 years ago today, Thomas & Friends' creator Wilbert Vere Awdry (June 15, 1911–March 21, 1997) had passed away. Today Thomas and Friends fans, I honor and thank him for creating Thomas The Tank Engine to lift all of our Thomas and Friends childhood memories. Wilbert, I dedicate the song: "The Island Song" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ssP3yku-yx8) to you, your life, your legacy, and everything you and your son Christopher Awdry accomplished to create "Thomas & Friends" (the books and then the TV series today) and the fans and I will always love the show to honor and remember you forever.
Would you have any photos of the pullman car platform detail for a drawing that i'm doing.
