Jim Dilts, noted author and historian traces railroad architecture from the classical Carrollton Viaduct, opened 180 years ago, through John R. Niernsee’s early iron-roofed engine houses, to Baldwin and Pennington’s industrial scale passenger car shop and Frank Furness’s picturesque Aberdeen station of the 1880s, Mr. Dilts examines the Baltimore and Ohio as an architectural pioneer. An illustrated talk based on research for his new book, “The Architecture of Railroads in the U. S. and Canada.”
