Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum: “The War Came by Train” – Part 3

Here is the third and final installment of the series of Cannonball blog posts on the special exhibit “The War Came by Train” currently being shown at the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum in downtown Baltimore, Maryland. My grandfather Harry Williams was a bridge constructor for the New York Central Railroad in Ohio for his career, so I was steeped in railroad lore as a child. My Dad was also very interested in railroads and the B&O had a spur that ran through my hometown. His sister worked in the local railroad depot and introduced him to my mother. So the railroad had kept my interest over the years, including my N scale model railroad and my miniature wargaming layouts which often feature railroad depots and tracks.
