Mark your calendars for the next piece of the collection to be unlocked!

This October, visitors of the B&O Railroad Museum are invited to walk through the B&O No. 1083 Pullman Diner — a fascinating blend of eras in railcar design.

Step into a world where the past and present converge in a single railcar. The No. 1083 is no ordinary diner — it boasts a streamlined exterior reminiscent of the mid-century, while its interior design harks back to the 1940s. This Pullman diner stands as a true symbol of two distinct generations of passenger equipment, bridging the gap between different eras of rail travel.

Don’t miss this opportunity to journey through time on the rails with us!
