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.
