THE STORY:

Our railroad history is disappearing.  Help us SAVE IT!  So many historic rails cars are just left to rot and their stories never told.  Let's not let that happen to B&O C-2095.  Help us raise money to historically restore our B&O Caboose C-2095 and retain this piece of our history. Your tax deductible donations will help us pay for restoration of this historic B&O Railroad Caboose. Once restored, the caboose will return to Main Street in Mount Airy, Maryland and become the Visitor Center along the Mount Airy Rails to Trails walking/biking path.

We are a 501(C)3 non-profit organization - all donations are tax deductible

The caboose is an I-5 cupola caboose built in the 1920's and was in service until the 1970's.  This caboose was a workhorse for the railroad throughout Maryland and West Viriginia and after retirement had several homes in Brunswick, MD as well as Frederick, MD before ending up on a farm in Mount Airy, MD.  The Town of Mount Airy, Maryland has a rich railroad heritage and we would like to bring C-2095 to town and give it a meaningful job once again as the Town's visitor center. The caboose was recently donated by the Scranton familly to the Mount Airy Community Fund for restoration and to bring a piece of history back to Main Street Mount Airy, MD.  Thanks to Digging & Rigging of Mount Airy for being the official mover of the Mount Airy Caboose C-2095!
