B&O Railroad Museum

Log Number: ST-251075-OMS-21

The B&O Railroad Museum will undertake a 36-month project to restore and interpret its No. 3316 ‘Washington’ Tavern-Observation Car built by the Pullman Company in 1949. This project will include a conserved and stabilized exterior for public view and a conserved, stabilized, and restored interior for public access. The project will provide a unique opportunity to board and go inside the car and an interpretive space to explore the impact of streamliner railroading on everyday Americans. New educational offerings will provide further interpretive information about the railroad car, particularly in the context of African American contributions to and experiences with railroading.
