Model Train Layouts In Delaware Valley Highlighted

By
Real Estate Agent with Patterson-Schwartz Real Estate

Ellicott City MD B&O stationModel train layouts in private homes are highlighted in a month-long event running from October 30 to November 30. What is possibly the largest event of its kind covers Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Maryland. Complete information is on the Model Train website http://www.modelrailroadopenhouse.com/

The picture here is one I took at a celebration in Ellicott City, Maryland.  The B&O Railroad Museum: Ellicott City Station is the oldest surviving railroad station in America, and was the original terminus of the first 13 miles of commercial railroad in the country.  See my previous post on the Frank Furness designed Baltimore and Ohio Water St. station in Wilmington, Delaware, which recently hosted a group from the B&O RR Historical Society

Who knew that my love of architectural history would lead to railroad history!

Kathy--I have found that there is a large community of (mostly) men who are model train fans--and steam train fans (my own son is one!)
