Maryland Train Station Updates

 In trying to compile a complete listing of all old Maryland train stations, one of the problems we bump into again and again is incorrect information posted on line.

    Example 1 – We found more than one web site that showed this building  (below) as the Train Station for Port Deposit up in Cecil County, Maryland .

Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great old building and looks like an old Train Station. Sadly, it isn’t the Train Station for Port Deposit, and never was. It was a stable and part of the Tome Building from what I have gathered.

The actual Port Deposit Train Station, from an old post card. From what we have gathered if the Train Station above still stands, it’s ruins and we doubt it survived at all.  ( We plan a road trip to confirm this soon) .

Example 2 – Checked a few websites and found this building as listed as the Taneytown Train Station .

Nice building, however newly built and right on the tracks. But it’s not the Train Station, which sits a block down the Street.

Example 3 : Worton Train Station – Worton Maryland. Keep seeing this picture posted…..

Actually this WAS a old Train Station, but for the Town of Black, Maryland. We are still trying to locate the Worton Station, which was a bit bigger.

The reason I posted this is simple, if you see something on the web site that you think may not be correct, please let us know,  We have recently posted new material on Parsonsburg, Pittsville, Willards, Newark and Gridletree which we found rarely mentioned online. We are still looking for a Tudor Style station in Trappe, and a Station in Greensboro that was said to have been ” moved to an Estate”.
