Almost 150 years later The Met remains a heavily used passenger and freight corridor for CSX, Amtrak and MARC. Join us for a half-day study tour that delves into the rich American history of The Met. The tour includes stops and talks at at least 3 iconic locations along the route: Point of Rocks, Gaithersburg, and Brunswick.
Our guide, Historian and Curator John P. Hankey, is a nationally respected expert on the B&O Railroad – so prepare to learn, be intrigued, and fascinated, even if you know these places! Beyond trains, structures, and track, architecture, industrial development, culture, and the role of the railroad in social contexts will be part of the conversation. Opportunities for photography will abound.
The tour begins at 12:00 PM at the Gaithersburg Community Museum, 9 South Summit Avenue, Gaithersburg, MD 20877. Tour will end approximately 6:00 PM near the Point of Rocks, MD MARC Station.
Tickets are $25.00 for members and $35.00 for non-members. Full details are available at the web site below.
This trip is sponsored by the National Railway Historical Society, Washington, D.C. Chapter, Inc.
