Welcome to the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Historical Society.  The society is dedicated to the preservation of and education about the history of America's first Common Carrier Railroad, the Baltimore & Ohio.  The society has members all over the world across a variety of railroad interests from modeling to research to preservation.

The Society maintains an archives of documentation from the Offices of the Vice Presidents of Operations and Engineering from the B&O Railroad.  We are also the custodians of several thousand photographs and blueprints, maps and drawings.  The Society also publishes a quarterly journal, The Sentinel and an bi-monthly on-line magazine The B&O Modeler.  Each year the society holds an Annual Convention and two mini-conventions in Ohio and Maryland respectively.

Got a Question?

Have a question about the B&O? We first recommend checking out the links on the left hand side of our Home Page, particularly the B&O Yahoo Group. There are innumerable members of the Yahoo Group who have a great amount of B&O historical knowledge. Also the B&O Museum is a great place to check on for genealogical inquiries, along with the Railroad Retirement Board. Links to those sites can be found here.
