The more I research the old McDonough Station , the more I find no answer as to what has happened to the structure. I have searched the area a few times with no luck, although I know it was in the area of McDonough Road and the Western Maryland railroad tracks. I did find a study from the mid 1970’s that did shed some light, a study mentioning the impact the building of I-795 might have on the old station, which at that time was being used as a residence. The study mentioned that most of the options of building the Interstate Highway would involve moving or tearing the old train station down. The Owings Mills stations a few miles down the path were also involved, but seemed to escape being torn down. My gut feeling is the Mcdonough Station wasn’t quite as lucky, but I have yet to find the decision made for the old station made back then. Guess I’ll just keep looking……
