The Timetable

The TimetableThe Society conveys its accumulated knowledge of the railroad to the membership through its magazine, the "Timetable," which contains articles authored by our members. Past issues have included:

  • Scale modeling articles and tips
  • Drawings of Ma & Pa stations, motive power and rolling stock
  • Old newspaper clippings
  • Photos taken by our members and/or from our archives
  • News reports about present-day descendants of the Ma & Pa
  • "Then and Now" articles comparing old photos of the Ma & Pa with present day shots.

The Timetable also contains the Muddy Creek Trading Post column which is used by members to trade, sell, or communicate interest in Ma & Pa related items and collectibles.

A subscription to the Timetable is included in your yearly membership dues.

Our Calendar

2016 Society calendarOur Society started publication of an annual calendar in 1990. What started out as an all black-and-white calendar on stock paper has evolved into a very professional looking publication, with full color images on the front and rear covers, and historic photographs above each month's calendar page.

The calendar is now a member benefit for those desiring to have it, by paying an additional surchange on their annual membership dues.

Our Books

Steam locomotives bookOur Society also publishes books on various aspects of the Maryland & Pennsylvania Railroad. Initially, data sheets were published about the bridges, trestles and locomotives of the railroad. Later, books of plans of various equipment and buildings were printed.

The Scoiety is now publishing books of photographs from our archives. Subjects include steam locomotives, diesel engines, forms, rolling stock, with more publications yet to come.

Extra copies and back issues of the calendars and the Timetableare available through our company store. They may also be purchased from the Society at meetings and events, the Great Scale Model Train Show, usually held four times a year at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium.
