After a couple of tries, we finally made it up to Eric and Ann’s for a visit to their new home in Elkridge, Md., near Baltimore. One of the things they’d already done and I’ve wanted to do for years is visit the B&O Railroad Museum, so Eric, grandkids Matthew and Sophia, and I headed out.
Apparently the roof was damaged by snow a few years ago and required a serious rebuild – here’s the inside.
The inside had the evolution of the development of locomotives starting with the one before Tom Thumb.
Civil War era locomotives.
A huge Allegheny steam locomotive.
An early diesel electric locomotive.
And of course, a couple of shots of the required model RR.
All photos can be enlarged by clicking on them.
It was a fun way to spend a few hours with Eric and the grandkids.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.
