When it comes to railroad lines, the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad is one of the most recognizable names from the storied past of railroads. It dates to roughly the 1820s and has a vast and rich history. When I went to Fostoria, Ohio, last year on a vacation trip mainly to see the railfan park, I managed, of course, to get some history of the railroads there. I noticed the old B & O depot on Main Street is still standing. I could not find when the depot was originally built, but if I had to guess it would be roughly the 1920s? I just don’t know for sure to be honest. It is no longer used as a train station but is now maintenance offices for two different rail lines, one of which is CSX. A train station was a busy place, especially before automobiles started to fill the highways. You might say it was the “social media” of that era, though contact was face to face and not through a computer. Fortunately there are still a few depots still standing and in use today.
