The Western Maryland Railway Museum

I recently passed through Union Bridge, Maryland and made a brief stop at a museum run by the Western Maryland Railway Historical Society.  The railway itself was in business from 1852 to 1983.  A section of it running westward from Cumberland, MD became the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad.  Another part near Hancock, MD was stripped of its tracks and converted into the Western Maryland Rail Trail.  There wasn't too much stuff outside, so I only took two photos.

These four cars, including a caboose, sit on a side track.  I included a bit of the main track to the left.

Two passenger baggage carts sit on the platform next to the museum building.  The above-shown caboose is in the background just behind the signal pole.
