Transportation tangles in a stack at the Jones Falls west of
Pennsylvania Station. This Light Rail train has emerged
from that station and is crossing over I-83 bound for BWI Airport.
In this vicinity
Mount Royal Avenue goes over
Howard Street, which goes over
Baltimore Light Rail, which goes over
Interstate 83, which goes over
the B&O Belt Line (CSX), which goes over
the Pennsylvania Railroad (Amtrak), which goes over
the Jones Falls river.
The double arches of Howard Street hide the B&O's Belt Line route, now
part of CSX. Remnants of the Ma & Pa are at far right, and the Pennsy's
(now Amtrak's) route to Washington, DC is closer, while parallel but even
closer is a disused alignment of the Northern Central Railway. There's
no shortage of both disused and active railroads in this spot.
