About 2 months ago (boy am I behind) we met my grandparents at the B & O Railroad Museum. Here are some pictures:
The first stone was placed on July 4, 1828, by the Grand Lodge of Maryland and assisted by Charles Carroll of Carrollton, the last surviving Signer of the Declaration of Independence.
Sorry it is a bit blurry, but it is due to the railroads that we have standard time. As the trains crossed the country, a standardized time system became necessary to avoid confusion and accidents.
One of my favorites – the horse pulled carriage. Spiffy huh?
Detail from the carriage. Beautiful isn’t it?
A sleeping car. Not exactly the Hilton.

Cecilia plays in their large wooden play train. She drove.
She definately enjoyed the trip.
I had to take a picture of this……I’m sure I scared some people doing cheers in the bathroom:
Here is Felicity with her Great Grandpa:
And Great Grandma:
Afterwards we went down to the harbor. I love this shot:
