B&O Old Main Line Tour
The OML is the route of the first commercial railroad in the United States as it pushed
west from Baltimore, MD to the Ohio River.
It was constructed largely by hand between
1828 and 1835, and amazingly, continues in active railroading use even now.
The B&O Washington Branch (now CSX Capital Subdivision) splits from the
Old Main Line in Relay and extends to Washington, DC.
It was built around 1835, but contains fewer surviving relics than the OML.
The route is busier and less scenic.
The B&O Metropolitan Branch, now CSX Metropolitan Subdivision, starts in Washington, DC and progresses northwest
to Weverton, MD. This tour continues to Harpers Ferry, WV as the Cumberland Subdivision.
The B&O built (and rebuilt) many short branches and other connections
in and around Baltimore. The photos are grouped into a logical
order but there is some overlap.
