Imagine this. You are wondering what to get your rail fan for Christmas. You can get him six locomotives that changed the course of railroading.
Now some of you are saying, “That is very nice, but those locomotives have to cost millions. I would be in debt for many years.”
You do have a point. Therefore, there is the next best thing.
Lark Media Group and the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad museum bring you ‘Steel Giants of the B&O Railroad’ a forty-eight minute DVD that tells the history of six locomotives that changed the course of railroading. Narrated by Courtney Wilson, executive director of the B&O Railroad Museum, you will get an in depth story on how each of these locomotives made great contributions to the railroad. You can enjoy this DVD in the comfort of your own home… or… you can make your way to the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Museum in Baltimore, Maryland and see all six of these locomotives on display.
‘Steel Giants of the B&O Railroad’ is available at the B&O Museum Store or online at www.borail.org. You can also purchase it directly from Lark Media Group at http://shop.larkmediagroup.com where they will also send you a free hand-drawn poster of the locomotive wheel arrangements. For your rail fan, it may be the best present they get this year.
