Help out the B&O Railroad Museum Reconstruction

Lionel, L.L.C. and the B&O Railroad Museum announced the availability of a specially designed boxcar, limited to 500 copies, to support the Museum's Roundhouse Restoration Fund.

Lionel created and designed this boxcar in B&O Sentinel Service livery marked with the Museum's logo, "Roundhouse Restoration Fund" and a car number "021703" which represents the date that the Museum's historic Roundhouse roof collapsed under the weight of a record snowstorm. The boxcar is accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity and aerial photo of the collapsed roof.The boxcars were donated by Lionel to the Museum and are available for $250.00 each on-line at or by telephone 410-752-2490. The Museum is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization and the purchase is partially tax deductible.
