Chesapeake Beach Train Station , Calvert County, Maryland

Chesapeake Beach Railroad

I had a chance to swing by Chesapeake Beach recently and found the Station closed due to Covid 19 concerns, but in good condition. The parking lot of the the Station is always full of cars and activity with a nearby Resort.

Chesapeake Beach Station during the 1970’s. Used as storage back then .

Stations along the way were :
District Line Station
Seat Pleasant Station
Berry Station
Ritchie Station
Marrs Station
Upper Marlboro Station
Pennsylavania Jct
Mt Calvert Station
Pindell Station
Lyon’s Creek Station
Chaney Station
Owings Station
Chesapeake Beach Station

A majority of the stations were very small ” Whistle Stop ” stations, often a general store or warehouse, or shelter, and most of the old stations are no longer standing.

In 1914 – I found mention of a annual excursion train going to Chesapeake Beach from the stops at Marlboro, Brown, Ritchie, and Behrend. The round trip ticket was a quarter.
