Other Information

Good photo times:  All day long.  An interesting note is the Appalachian trail crosses the Potomac River on a walkway built onto the CSX Winchester branch bridge.  Although a chain link fence separates the trains and the people it is quite a feeling to be on a bridge with a train only feet away.

Note:  Do not tresspass on railroad property.  The high number of tourists, especially on weekends, prompts not only the railroad but also the park and town police to keep an eye open.

Note:  Parking here can be a real test of patience.  If you do railfan here the motto is "come early".  On the weekends from spring through fall this usually means 8AM or earlier.  The only public parking in the town near the tracks is on the street next to the station.  The small commuter lot at the station is for commuters only and its enforced.
