#25 William Mason, returning to B&O!
Returning to the B&O Railroad Museum September 16, 2017!

Over the past three years, the B&O Railroad Museum's Restoration Staff have been working diligently restoring "America's Favorite Locomotive", B&O Railroad #25 "William Mason", back to its original 1856 livery. On Saturday, September 16, 2017 this beloved locomotive returns back home to the B&O's historic 1884 Roundhouse for all of us to see and admire.

The first 250 B&O members and visitors who arrive for this festive celebration will receive a free commemorative post card of the #25 "William Mason" locomotive.

The day's celebration will also offer B&O members, fans, and visitors special programming and tours highlighting the locomotive's history, celebrity, and restoration process. See archival artifacts and images of the Mason not usually on public display and listen to the discoveries made during the restoration process.

The restoration of B&O #25 represents one of the highest achievements of the Museum's restoration program. In order to ensure that we have the resources to continue this level of quality work, we will launch a small fundraising campaign on September 16 to support our locomotive and car conservation and restoration projects.
