Continuing southwest from where the Claremont Branch wye later met the B&P
line, one quickly reaches the site of the Catonsville Short Line (CSL), a
Class III railroad that served Catonsville, Maryland. Though the CSL
ceased operation during 1972, enough artifacts are found to warrant its
own tour pages.
Perhaps due to property or grading problems, the CSL met the B&P a short
distance northeast of the B&P's St. Agnes Station. The resulting
inconvenience to passengers caused St. Agnes Station to be replaced by
Loudon Park Station nearer the CSL junction.
The exact location of the B&P's St. Agnes Station has proved elusive. Though
the station is named on E. Robinson's 1882 map of The City of Baltimore and
Vicinity, the map is ambiguous about the station's location. On the map
different colors depict different owners of adjacent land parcels, but which
of the small squares represents the station? The overlaid red question mark
and arrows suggest two candidates.
During years following this map, Joseph Brinkley's property would be added
to Loudon Park Cemetery, and Maidens Choice Road south of the cemetery would
be erased, its traffic shifted to the newer and straighter Wilkens Avenue.
