This is a great opportunity for any interested in the B&O to reach into the archives for valuation maps, equipment lists, structures, timetables, industries served and much more. Although you may not be a B&O modeler, the archives may possess information valuable to your own railroad if it exchanged with the B&O or if you wish to peruse general references such as Original Railway Equipment Registers.
Please join us.
