Passenger trains on the Baltimore & Ohio and Pennsylvania railroad racing out of Washington. At one time, both railroads scheduled express trains for New York out of Washington Union Station at 3 p.m. sharp. Since the two railroads paralleled each other, one can surely assume that at least occasionally the timing was right and pride overwhelmed the engine crews and the two trains raced each other out of the nation's capital. Photographic evidence exists for at least one afternoon in June 1930, when B&O train no. 22 had a slight lead on PRR train no. 144 as they passed F Tower. For another race between famous railroads, see record 1090.
