Another B&O Dining Car Menu

It is funny that the December Akron Railroad Club eBulletin covers the final decade of the Baltimore & Ohio’s passenger service. I see that the article featured a menu from my collection. Well, here is another menu from my collection. This is from the final day of the B&O Capitol Limited. I do enjoy the Amtrak version very much, but I know it is just not the same.

I have many B&O menus, china, timetables, etc. I have ridden the Amtrak version of the Capitol Limited many times. When I rode it the first couple times it had dome cars. The Superliners had not come on line yet. I loved the old dome cars with the forward facing view.

I miss that view with the Superliner lounges. By the way, as you can see by the photo I even have a B&O tea bag. Probably 50 years old or more. I have no intentions of using it, but it demonstrates the fact that people will save anything, and then collectors like me are ecstatic to find it.
