Here another stem of the branch crosses Oakland Mills Road, one of the
few surviving area roads that predates the town of Columbia.
The tracks at the bottom left are a siding that serve warehouses. There
must be a kennel here as well because my visit caused quite a noisy
ruckus among the group of 10 dogs caged nearby.
In 2001, one reader wrote to say he still saw trains visit this location
but very infrequently, and not past Oakland Mills Road. Google
Earth maps from that time do show freight cars parked in this area.
