DescriptionModel of the Baltimore & Ohio (B&O) "Pioneer" from 1829-1830. The Pioneer was an early horse-drawn railcar and the first passenger service car in the western hemisphere. The railroad line ran from the B&O start point in Mt. Clare, Baltimore, to Ellicott Mills (now Ellicott City). This model was made by Henry W. Miles (1857-1936), a lifelong painter and cabinetmaker. In addition to his career as a streetcar painter for the United Railways and Electric Co., he handmade more than twenty transportation models between 1875 and 1933.
