The B & O RailRoad Museum: Ellicott City Station is located near the Ellicott City bridge. It’s a part of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad network extending from the East Coast to the midwest.  It is the oldest surviving railroad station in America and it was the (original) last terminal of the first 13 miles of commercial railroad in the US.

It;s a pretty neat place to see. It’s not big by an scale but it’s a pretty nice place to check out if you happen to live here and trying to pass time before going to the restaurants nearby. The main depot building, the freight house, the first horse drawn passenger rail car and a 1927 “I-5” Caboose are in the museum. In the freight house is  a 40-foot HO-gauge model train and a layout showing the original thirteen miles of commercial rail track stretching from Baltimore to Ellicott Mills.
