Baltimore & Ohio Southwestern Railway Baggage Tag

And another rare railroad item. A “Baltimore & Ohio Southwestern Railway” baggage tag found by ITTHC member Wally Dick. This railway was short lived, approximately 6 years. Formed August 12, 1893 and sold in foreclosure in July 13, 1899 after being declared insolvent December 23, 1898. Again, a rare find. Outstanding find Wally!
