Train Day at the Library 2017

posted Oct 31, 2017, 6:15 PM by James Lilly

Again this year, the Library Committee is hosting “Train Day” at Bowie Tower on the Sunday after Thanksgiving – the railfan’s favorite holiday. This is the day when Amtrak runs the most trains of the year as people return from the Thanksgiving “exodus” and there will be lots of action on the Northeast Corridor. The library will be open from 10 am to 4 pm, rain or shine. Come have free cider and donuts, view the Chessie System caboose, and browse the wonderful collections we have assembled.


When:  Sunday, November 26, 2017, 10 am – 4 pm


Where:  Martin F. O’Rourke Memorial Railroad Library

Bowie Huntington Railroad Museum

8614 Chestnut Ave.,

Bowie, MD 20715
