The B&O opened HX Tower in Halethorpe, Maryland during 1917 to control traffic switching between the Old Main Line and Washington Branch. After CSX centralized traffic control it closed the tower during 1985. The tower continued to be used by train crews into the 2000s, but during the 2010s was broken into and occupied by homeless. With its windows uncovered, rain is entering and hastening the structure's demise.
