We here in Maryland are lucky to have a halfway decent rail transportation from Martinsburg, WV to DC daily.
The Point of Rocks station is just a beautiful piece of architecture.

Just a a few miles down the southern track is the Dickerson station.

The just up the road from me is a privately owned railway.

Thanks Kent! Maryland was, still is, a very "train friendly" state. Outside the big cities, there are many nice olde rail stations that still carry people to DC to work or agri products, coal, freight to other cities.
Thanks!

---------------------------------------------Thanks Tom! Suzanne had a dental appt in the small agri town we grew up in today and we drove thru Main Street and there is nothing left! The city, County and State govt have destroyed the town!! There is a new train museum there now so I will be headed that way soon. The drug store where my father was the pharmacist is now a bar. The bank, the funeral home, the beauty salon....all gone to Section8 housing for blocks and downright UGLY buildings!! All the olde graineries are now bars or storage units!
There is only 1 Community left and it is protected by Federal Law, Washington Grove.

This quaint little community sits alone surrounded by immense residential and industrial growth. It is that growth that destroyed the small town my wife and I grew up in. All the houses are unique. It grew out of a need for residents living in Washington, DC to escape. Suzanne and I had lunch there yesterday in fact!

Thanks Marcelo!

OH! I must post the towns railway station also. It is on the same rail line as the above stations but about 80%smaller.

The only constant in life is change. Sometimes the superior is thrown away for the inferior. Reminds me of Joni Mitchell's "Big Yellow Taxi" lyrics.

'you can't go home again'-
I tried that once, visiting all of the old houses Marj and I once lived in. MISTAKE!
horrible paint jobs, big trees cut down, on and on. never again.
stay well, tom

p.s. the above quote is the title of an excellent novel by Thomas Wolfe

Truly an outstanding series of images, Dan. Every image is superbly made.
Cheers,

**In 2013 I went back to Oregon and found my childhood home. When we moved from there it bordered on a large forest. I returned to find the forest gone and replaced by houses as far as I could see. You can never really go back.**

---------------------------------------------You are 100% correct James! The mayor of our small hometown gave in to progress and the entire area is now wall-to-wall construction except for Washington Grove. A bit of fresh ait surrounded by chaos!

The 2 houses I grew up in when we moved to Mary-land(1957) still stand and are in great shape. But a block in any direction and you just see chaos and destruction!
Thanks Tom!
