The Western Maryland Railway
The Western Maryland Railway was never a large Class 1 rail carrier, but during its 131 colorful years of existence, it provided extremely fast, efficient, and reliable freight; coal-hauling and passenger service in the states it served.
This book contains images from the history of this remarkable railroad and also provides the reader the opportunity to see how the legacy of the Western Maryland Railway is being maintained and remembered even today at some of its well-known stations, such as in Cumberland and Union Bridge, Maryland now home of the Western Maryland Railway Historical Society (WMRHS).
The Western Maryland is now gone, but through the wonderful images captured and preserved at the WMRHS and private archival photograph collections, the dream of the railway will live on.
