Western Maryland Railway 7th Crossing

River Crossing

One of the last sections of the Western Maryland Railway to be abandoned, this area was a busy connection between the town of North Branch and Cumberland, and remained in service until January 1976. Today, however, it is in poor condition and difficult to get to because of the location of the Cumberland Municipal Airport. A boat ramp at Wiley Ford is nearby.
