During the 1930s, the Baltimore & Annapolis Railroad picked up the pieces
of the failed Washington, Baltimore & Annapolis Railway, and arranged to
share part of B&O's route to Camden Station. Pictured here is a
2-car B&A fantrip using BA 92 and BA 325, an ex-Long Island Railroad
open-platform el car the B&A operated as a mail car.
By 1950, the then-new B-W Parkway would sever this B&A connection with
B&O, and end its passenger operation. B&A would soldier on as
a freight operation until 1985.
A rebuilt version of B&O's Carroll (CX) Tower would likewise endure until 1985,
having been hemmed in a few years prior by Interstate 95. I-95 bridged
over the railroad about where the photographer was standing for this shot.
