The B&O Railroad in Silver Spring

An image from the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad in Silver Spring, MD is the sixth image for the Days Of Yore: Montgomery County, MD project.
B&O Railroad in Silver Spring, MD

Save to foursquare
This is one of the more modern sites that Days Of Yore has chosen for this note-card project.  Built in 1945, this train station from the B&O Railroad is in Silver Spring, MD.  Passengers travelled from Washington, DC to their destinations in the north and the west.  It ceased to be an active station stop in 2000 and now operates as a historical property.  See Montgomery Preservation's website for directions and more information.

The artist wanted to have a station of the B&O Railroad in this collection, since a sketch of the C&O Canal's Monocacy Aqueduct already was included.  The B&O Railroad and the C&O Canal were built in the same year.  Their work crews would often feud for resources and food, according to

In addition to the history, I enjoy train stations.  If you do, too, make a visit!
