Western Maryland Scenic Railroad Station and Visitors Center


    Daytime scenic excursions leave the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad Station daily for 3.5 hour round trips to Frostburg, with 1.5 hour stop there before making the return trip. The station is utilized as the headquarters of the Canal Place Preservation & Development Authority and the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad.

    The C&O Canal National Historical Park Visitors Center is inside the station and features an exhibit area with interactive and educational displays about the history of the C&O Canal and Cumberland. A model of the Paw Paw Tunnel lets you step back in time. Check out a life size section of a canal boat and view exhibits on the canal's construction, cargo, mules, locks, and crew before you leave.
