United States of America, Maryland, Baltimore County, Catonsville
Dating to about the 1870s, the Catonsville Short Line was a branch of the Pennsylvania Railroad that ran south from the main line to serve the developing suburban community of Catonsville. It lay just down the hill from the White and Liebig homes (MD134 and MD223, respectively) in an area now covered in part by the Baltimore Beltway (I-695). Passenger service appears not to have survived beyond the 1890s (due to the existence of a streetcar line), although freight traffic continued until 1972.
The folder includes a worksheet, a photocopied map of the area served by the line, and information about the line's history and its contemporary status.
