The B&O Railroad Museum is inviting all board gamers for all-day Games With Trains event
BALTIMORE, MD – January 18, 2023 – The B&O Railroad Museum is inviting all board gamers to the Museum on Jan. 21 for its Games With Trains event from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The event is being held in the Museum’s historic 1884 Baldwin Roundhouse in collaboration with the Games Club of Maryland. This is the first time the Museum and the Games Club of Maryland are partnering together for this offering! There will be more than 50 train-themed strategy games available for everyone of all skill and interest levels to play and demo.
Game designer Wes Crawford will also be demoing and playtesting his soon-to-be published game Engine Thieves – The Andrews Railroad Raid of 1862. One of the raiders of said raid was William Pittenger; he detailed his experience in his 1882 book, The Great Locomotive Chase, upon which Disney based their 1956 film of the same name and featured the B&O No. 25 “William Mason” and the B&O No. 13 “Lafayette” – both located in the Museum’s Roundhouse.
Between games, visitors will be able to catch the Mile One Express Train Ride at 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. The Museum’s café will also be open all day with food and beverages available for attendees.
