Group Description

This list is for the use of individuals with an interest in the history and modeling of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. Application for membership must include a short one-sentence narrative to justify request.

Many list members either belong to the B&O Railroad Historical Society, are Society officers, or write for "The Sentinel", official publication of the Society. The list owner certainly supports the Society. Research and writing for "The Sentinel" is strongly encouraged. This list is NOT a part of, NOR is it affiliated with the B&O Railroad Historical Society. Rules are simple: Stay close to the B&O topic, use a commendable degree of politeness, and enjoy expanding your own knowledge while helping others. {FLAMERS WILL BE PUT ON MODERATED STATUS. IN EXTREME CASES, INDIVIDUALS MAY BE BANNED FROM THE LIST}. In posting photos and files to the "Files" and "Photos" sections, the member is responsible for making sure he/she has the legal right to use the material being posted. Please consult the posting guidelines in each section before uploading images or files. Attachments to individual posts are also allowed.

Advertisement of the sale of railroad-related items on this list is permitted as long as there is B&O content in some form, and that responses to such advertisements are kept off-list. ALL announcements of upcoming train shows must indicate that the show takes place at a location within either of the thirteen states that the B&O operated. HOWEVER, announcement of any show taking place OUTSIDE of the thirteen-state area that the B&O operated must have some mention of B&O content. Violation of this train show advertisement policy by any list member will be dealt with appropriately on a case-by-case basis, either resulting in placement of that member on moderated status, or in the extreme, possible banishment from the list.
