A journal following the history, design, construction and operation of Bernard Kempinski's 1/48th - (O) Scale model railroad depicting the U. S. Military Railroad (USMRR) Aquia-Fredericksburg line in 1863, and other model railroad projects.
Last weekend I lead a tour group to the B&O Museum. The kind folks at the museum opened it early for the group so for two hours we had the place to ourselves. The museum provided tour guides, so I was able to wander around and soak in the atmosphere. It brought home to me how magical that museum is.
The 4-4-0 Mason was in the shop for a boiler rebuild. In its place was a late 1860s era Winans Camel engine number 305. See photo above.
