Interesting History

 Washington, D.C. and the surrounding area is steeped in railroad history. The first railroad came to town before the Civil War when the Baltimore & Ohio arrived. There are literally hundreds of volumes of information on the rich and storied history of railroading in this area. Our library is a focal point for our Chapter's information on Washington, D.C. area railroads. We have also compiled some information here that is of general interest.

We welcome additional contributions to this section.


As we find interesting and worthwhile sites, pictures, and pages, we will list them here for your benefit.  Got a suggestion for one, contact us.
