Baltimore and Ohio Railroad
This collection focuses on certificates issued by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad.

The B&O received its charter in 1827 and the railroad continued under the same name until it was acquired by the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad in 1963. (The C&O later become the Chessie System).

During its 136 year history, the B&O went to the capital markets many times for financing. Certificates resulting from those transactions are shown here.
