Baltimore Streetcar Museum

Visited my hometown of Baltimore, MD again this past weekend and took the opportunity to drive by the Baltimore Streetcar Museum to see what there was. The last time I was there as about 30+ years ago so really had no memories of the place. Was a lot of fun to see the stock out in their yard and some of the other trackside structures. The trackage is on the old Maryland and Pennsylvania Railroad right-of-way, and the roundhouse and a freightshed still exist. See their website for more information about individual pieces of traction stock.

A nice bonus to see this iconic car in such beautiful restored condition.
