The B & O Railroad Museum

About 2 months ago (boy am I behind) we met my grandparents at the B & O Railroad Museum. Here are some pictures:

Sorry it is a bit blurry, but it is due to the railroads that we have standard time. As the trains crossed the country, a standardized time system became necessary to avoid confusion and accidents.

I had to take a picture of this......I'm sure I scared some people doing cheers in the bathroom:
