Road Name and History:
Baltimore & Ohio Railroad: The City of Baltimore recognized by the 1820s without a canal to the West it was trailing other seaport cities. In 1828 ground was broken on the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, America's first common carrier railroad. Reaching the goal of the Ohio River at Wheeling, VA, in 1853, under the leadership of John Garrett in the latter part of the 19th Century the B& O expanded to have lines covering much of the Midwest. An also-ran as an Eastern Trunk Line to the Pennsylvania and New York Central, the B&O entered receivership in 1896, emerging from bankruptcy in 1899. A steady, conservative, well respected railroad, in 1964 Chesapeake & Ohio bought 90% of B&O's stock, combining the railroads as Chessie System in 1973. Most of B&O's major routes are still busy traffic arteries under CSX to this day.
