WOW!!

Now that's what I call a museum!

I must admit to really liking the model tunnel motor - and especially the boxcab - and the real thing doesn't seem bad, either … .

Just out of curiosity, did you see any label stating who made the models?. They are GREAT!.

I'd forgotten all about those models until now.
Whenever I visited the museum in the past, I usually just went past them on my way to see the 1:1 scale stuff...
If memory serves, they were made many years ago. I'd like to think I recall that the B&O directly commissioned them in the far-off past, but I can't say that for sure.

Mel Thornbaugh (sp?) mentioned once in MR that someone connected with the B&O  traveling O scale layout that the railroad had- (Larry Siegal?) would beg models off him when they were finished-- Hence the B&O 4-4-0 and 4-6-0 Hayes Camel that Mel did construction series on in Model Railroader.

Models are certainly his quality

Mel Thornbough. I admired his work in MR when it was a great magazine. Jose.

Hi Jose.

Well spotted ol' bean !
It clearly stays on the rails somehow.
This is what happens when ol' timers like me, look at detailed scale models, without glasses, on teeny-weeny cellphone screens !

Anyway...
...I've switched to P.C screen to admire Herbs soooper-doooper photo of that nice yellow crane !

Not bad...
...if I had to choose though...
...I'd take the ol' time woody 4-wheeler home with me !

When my Lotto-numbers come up...
...the B&O museum is def. on my U.S rail-tour list !

Wish me luck !

:moose:

Si.

Planning to take some out-of-town visitors up there on Saturday, followed by a B-day bash at Baldwin's Station Restuarant in Sykesville, MD. The eatery is in the old B&O station, designed by E. Francis Baldwin, the B&O's go-to architect of the late 19th Century.

Give yourself plenty of time for the museum, EBT.

More pix added 4/6
