Join the B&O for a celebration of our First Responders!

On September 7th, 2024, from 10:00 am to 3:30 pm the B&O Railroad Museum is excited to partner with the First Responders Children’s Foundation for First Responders Showcase!  

Come out to meet First Responders, learn about their roles, and take a ride on the Mile One Express over to the Restoration Shop for a controlled collision demonstration. Train rides to the controlled collision site depart at 10:45 am and 1:30 pm. During the controlled collision, see First Responders in action as they respond to a simulated emergency on the tracks!

The roundhouse was my favorite part, because it gives a true feel for what goes on in a roundhouse—the cars are stationary, but seeing the actual tracks is eye-opening.
