At Aberdeen, Maryland stands the last original B&O station on the Philadelphia Branch. Designed by Frank Furness, the 1885 structure saw passengers until 1958 at which time the B&O converted it to equipment storage, a role it would serve for successor CSX into the 1990s. Local groups then began efforts to preserve the historic station and perform repairs.

During 2014 the station was moved onto a new foundation about 50 feet further from the still-active tracks. Both volunteer help and donations are needed to complete the restoration efforts; you can mail contributions to the address specified at Aberdeen Room Archives and Museum.
