Inscription.  
This tablet is placed here in recognition of the enormous contribution made by

CSX Corporation

to the understanding and preservation of America's Railroad Legacy by its establishment of the B&O Railroad Museum as an independent and private non-profit educational institution in 1987.

Toward this end, CSX Corporation and its railroad subsidiary, CSX Transportation, contributed real property and historic buildings--constituting the Mt. Clare Shops and Yards of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, the home of American Railroading for 165 years--along with the collections of locomotives, rolling stock, and other railroad equipment representing the physical legacy of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, Chesapeake and Ohio Railway, The Western Maryland Railway and other antecedent railroads; and established an endowment to support the continued preservation of artifacts, buildings and property.

The Board of Directors of the B&O Railroad Museum acknowledges its gratitude this 18th day of March 1992 on the occasion of the transfer of the first mile of track of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad to the
