Station Grand Opening
Grand Opening of the former WM depot - January 2000

The month of January, 2000 saw the opening of the former Western Maryland Depot in Union Bridge Maryland to the public for the first time in 40 years.  To celebrate, the society modules were displayed in the east waiting room for three Sundays during the month.  Over 500 people came to see the station and the model trains.

Celebrate with us on this page then, the return of passengers to the station as they ride the trains of yesterday! Special signs for the modular group were displayed
