Western Maryland Railway provided passenger and freight services along tracks between Baltimore MD, Webster Springs, WV, and Connellsville, PA. Major stops included Penmar, Camp Ritchie, Hagerstown, Williamsport, Cumberland, and Elkins.
Passenger service ended in 1959, and the Western Maryland Railway was fully merged into the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad in 1983.
Most of the parts of the Western Maryland Railway which have not been abandoned are now owned and maintained by CSX, though the glory days of the Western Maryland Railway can now be relived by taking a trip on the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad.
