Milestones:Mainline Electrification of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, 1895
Abstract On 27 June 1895, at the nearby Howard Stre
On 27 June 1895, at the nearby Howard Street Tunnel, the B&O demonstrated the first electrified main line railroad, and commercial operation began four days later. The electrification involved designing, engineering, and constructing electric locomotives far more powerful than any then existing and creating innovative electric power generation and distribution facilities. This pioneering achievement became a prototype for later main line railroad electrification.
