When horses with buggies were the primary traffic on York Road, the
grade crossing was not yet overcrowded. That's NC's Cockeysville
tower, or cabin as the PRR preferred to call it, on the left. The
passenger station is the closest frame structure on the right (east)
side of York Road.
Due to proximity to York Road, Cockeysville became an important stop
for the railroad. Crew changes and communications were handled here,
and for a time the station served as the town's post office.
