Atlantic (Original) 1832
The original Atlantic was built at B&O’s Mt. Clare Shops, Baltimore, in 1832. This locomotive, originally the Andrew Jackson, built in February 1836, was altered in 1893 to resemble the Atlantic for exhibition at the World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago. In the background is Mt. Clare Station, opened in 1830, now the oldest station in the world and also entrance to the Museum.
