The B&O Railroad Museum’s month-long holiday spectacular is back, and this year we’re diving into the history of the railroad to deliver festive tidings of joy and giving! Magical Holiday Express 2019: Tidings in Transit celebrates both the story of the B&O and the spirit of giving by festively highlighting the four major regions along the railroad’s original route and raising donations for four wonderful charities along the way! So join us each week as we journey from Ohio to West Virginia, West Virginia to western Maryland, and western Maryland to Baltimore enjoying local treats and traditions — because no matter where you’re from, the B&O Railroad Museum should always feel like home!

Week I – Greetings From Ohio!

Week II – Greetings From West Virginia!

Week III – Greetings From Western Maryland!

Week IV – Greetings From Baltimore!
