Ma & Pa Railroad

Much of the waking path by the stream was originally the Maryland and Pennsylvania Railroad.  The path runs parallel to the actual roadbed in a few locations.

The railroad provided passenger service to downtown, Towson, Bel Air, York Pa. and many points in between.  Lumber and coal were also delivered directly to the neighborhood.
