The old P.W. & B. passenger station in Perryville looks rather fine on a late summer day as an Amtrak Acela rushes past.  Built in 1904, the station continues serving commuters as about 14 Marc trains chug into the station each today and the conductors shout all aboard.  Each morning the parking lots fill and the old depot hums with activity with passengers climbing aboard for the morning commute to Baltimore and Washington.

Built in 1905, the Perryville Passenger Station is an important stop on Maryland's commuter rail system.

  1. The original entrance to Perry Point went along the east side of the station. There are stones from the original bridge that when over the ravine between Perry Point and Perryville.
