After the Lincoln exhibit, we toured other areas of the museum and checked out the model trains that were actually active!
AMAZING MODEL TRAIN DISPLAYS- There were several model train displays, one indoors and one outside.
There was a huge display outside with several trains, that ran on tracks over 100 feet from end to end, through various terrain, model cities, and in and out of tunnels. It was really cool. We took a short video of some of them. (See below).
The indoor model train display actually had many buildings from Baltimore as it is today, including the Bromo Seltzer Tower and Oriole Park, Camden Yards!

DINING IN STYLE ON A B & O RAILROAD TRAIN - Passengers who dined on the Baltimore and Ohio during the heyday of American railroading received five-star service: white tablecloths, china, and silver; food cooked from scratch; and the undivided attention of skilled waiters. The B&O's cuisine won wide acclaim as the finest railway food in the country. Passengers enjoyed it as the slightly swaying dining car clicked along over the rails. This is a summary of a book available about the dining experiences from days gone by - and the book is available on Amazon for anyone interested. Just click here.
