Western Maryland
Ohiopyle, Pennsylvania
July 2, 1971

The Western Maryland maintained this trim station at Ohiopyle (spelled as two words by the WM) along the Youghiogheny River. Allthough controlled by the Chesapeake & Ohio and Baltimore & Ohio since 1968, the WM had been permitted to run its own affairs independently, but in 1973 Chessie will begin placing C&O officers in key vice-presidential roles at WM; later that year it will file to abandon most of the WM main line.
