B. & O. Railroad, short for the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, is the third Railroad on a standard Monopoly Board. It is situated between Illinois Avenue and Atlantic Avenue. It is one of four Railroads, along with Reading Railroad, Pennsylvania Railroad, and Short Line.

Confusingly, the real-life B&O Railroad did not directly serve Atlantic City.

Its British equivalent is Fenchurch Street.

Rent

Like the other three railroads, B&O's Rent is based on how many Railroads you own. The rent if...

  • 1 Railroad Owned: $25
  • 2 Railroads Owned: $50
  • 3 Railroads Owned: $100
  • 4 Railroads Owned: $200.

Cost: $200

Summary

B. & O. Railroad is potent when paired with at least 2 other Railroads. With a lowest possible rent of $25, it is a weak property by itself and should not be used as a standalone method of bankrupting players. However, when paired with the other 3 Railroads, rent can increase to a much better $200. If the player is sent to a Railroad by a Chance card, rent is increased to a hefty $400. If no other Railroads can be obtained, B. & O. Railroad can be used for trading with players.
