New Material

Well, we have been working on Maryland Train Stations for the past two months, and we have added quite a few old train stations to the site : I found several really good websites , but I never found a website that really had a good description for Eastern Shore stations. Most had nothing at all for the smaller stations on the lower Eastern Shore, and while we don’t have them all (yet),we did manage to locate and photo a majority of them :

Claiborne was the old wharf/station on the Bay. It was moved years ago to St. Michaels’.

St Michael’s had another train station and after digging and digging, we finally found it. Our research showed it had been around Dodson Road in St. Michaels, but all we could find was an empty lot. Further research found the small station a few blocks away on North Street, and getting ready for a major renovation.

Kilduff’s will follow the work and see how it goes……..

A little to the East of St Michael’s was the old Newcomb Station,currently used as a Post Office.

 

Just to the North, the renovated Stevensville Station can be found.

 

The old station that has us a tad confused is Trappe/Oxford. Several sites pointed to the Real Estate Business just North of Town, but Kilduff’s had read that the old station for Trappe was a different style building, more of a Tudor Style and had been converted into a residence. We’ll keep digging, but here’s what we have so far.

 

On the Northern section of the East Shore, ( not quite Cecil County ) , we have read again and again about the tiny Worton Station. We drove through Town three times, looking and looking with no luck, but as we were leaving Town for the next Town on the list, we found it.

The tiny station is just South of Town and appears to be used as a home. We’ll try and get some better pics in the future, but it’s cool just to add the hard to find station to the website.

 

Two Stations I knew existed but could never find were East New Market and Goldsboro. I email from the town of East New Market (Thank You ) who helped find that station and a drive through Goldsboro located that one. Two Really cool old stations .

East New Market Train Station – Eastern Shore, Maryland.

 

And the Goldsboro Station (Below)

Both Stations look like they are waiting for work to be done so that they can get renovated. 

I’m still missing a few Eastern Shore Stations, but it’s just a matter of time before I find them and add them. Two stations I am looking for are the Greensboro Maryland train station that I have seen postcards for, but seems to have vanished. One website states it was moved to a area Estate. Still looking to see if it’s still standing.  I also have conflicting information of the station at Trappe. The Station I located outside of Town is NOT the style building I was looking for………

Looking around the lower Eastern Shore, I have a few stations that caught my eye. The station at Newark has been renovated and is currently a museum. The building is in great condition and well worth a visit. 

Newark / Queponco Maryland Train Station 

Just South of Newark is the Girdletree Station(s). The old Passenger station is found along Onley Road.

The Freight Station can be found one block to the North 

 

A bit to the West of Girdletree you’ll find the old Westover Station

Finally, the three old stations on the Lower Eastern Shore that never seem to make anyone’s list. Actually found them n the State Website for the Maryland Historical Trust and I was very pleased all three were were not only still standing but in excellent condition. 

Parsonsburg – Maryland – Old Train Station ( Moved to Pittsville Maryland )

As you travel East on Old Ocean Highway, the old Pittsfield Station stands. 

And finally, for this post, the old Willards Train station stands in great condition.
