This tablet is placed here in recognition of the enormous contribution made by
to the understanding and preservation of America's Railroad Legacy by its establishment of the B&O Railroad Museum as an independent and private non-profit educational institution in 1987.
Toward this end, CSX Corporation and its railroad subsidiary, CSX Transportation, contributed real property and historic buildings—constituting the Mt. Clare Shops and Yards of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, the home of American Railroading for 165 years—along with the collections of locomotives, rolling stock, and other railroad equipment representing the physical legacy of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, Chesapeake and Ohio Railway, The Western Maryland Railway and other antecedent railroads; and established an endowment to support the continued preservation of artifacts, buildings and property.
The Board of Directors of the B&O Railroad Museum acknowledges its gratitude this 18th day of March 1992 on the occasion of the transfer of the first mile of track of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad to the Museum.
