07-06-16 PHOTOS: West Jersey NRHS Visits Baltimore

Back in Mid-June the West Jersey Chapter of the NRHS lead by Subchatter Chuchubob paid a visit to Baltimore to ride the Light Rail, Metro Subway and visit the Baltimore Streetcar Museum. I helped out as best I could leading the group to a lunch venue and keeping people from getting lost. The trip was somewhat hampered by taking an unnecessarily late Amtrak train and some poor mobility of various trip participants.

The basic schedule was to take the Light Rail from Mt Royal to Timonium and then back down to Penn Station. From there we went and got lunch before visiting the BSM for a few hours. At that point the group hobbled to the State Center Metro Station for a ride out to Owens Mills and to Lexington Market. Finally the group made a quick swing by Camden Yards before finally returning to Penn Station.

You can see the pictures I took at:

And of course some examples.

This Amtrak HHP-8 has its rear view mirror or sun visor deployed.

#4533 and #1164 were providing the service at the BSM.

The former SETPA work car is in the process of being re-painted.

We got to take some pics around the former B&O Mt Royal station. Here is the trainshed, CPL's for MT ROYAL interlocking and the north portal to the infamous Howard St tunnel.

 And the other direction.

Baltimore Metro Budd Cars depart the Millford Mill station which is the best known photo location on the line.
