By 1875, the rapidly expanding railroad had outgrown not only its
facilities at Mt. Clare, but also those associated with Camden Station,
so the B&O chose this location for shops known as Bailey's Roundhouse.
For about the next 75 years, countless trains would pass by or be serviced
here. Today, courtesy construction of I-395, the Light Rail, and the stadiums,
little more than the tracks and a mound of dirt (left) survive.
Stockholm Street, unseen on the right, had been a great spot from which to view
the action before it was fenced off during 2014. Prior to the fences, this
photo captured a light rail train climbing over a CSX mixed freight which is
headed to the right: south from Camden Station or the Howard Street Tunnel,
and bending east onto the Locust Point Branch. The elevated highway in the
background is I-395.
