MARC train #P893 arrives at it's last stop at Downtown Frederick, MD and heads back to the storage yard as it's shift ends. Meanwhile I also give a little tour of the Train station at the beginning. Enjoy! :)

      I live in Frederick and take the Transit busses to the community college here everyday. I get to see the MARC every morning. It's awesome to see people with the same passion as me.

      I was here today! It's Sunday so nothing ran, but got great vid of the original Frederick station (a ways back you asked me about it) and spent some time at Frederick Junction too. I did get lucky at Point of Rocks, oddly enough. Still-I'll have to get out here on a weekday and grab myself a MARC! Left a thumbs up.

      I like the station, the brick platforms, the goossndck lamps. Looks lkke a rr station not a busssssss shelter. Wonder why they felt the need for a block signal on a 3-mile branch line... is there still some freight traffic on tge route?

      I think it's also something to do with the traffic on South Street. There's a fair amount of vehicle traffic on that road going towards or coming from Monocacy Boulevard and I-70, and Frederick had a pretty long interval without passenger rail traffic, so it's all about safety and visibility!

      The only purpose of them is to guard the switch beyond the crossing. Sometimes marc trains are held their wile another marc train passes. It is not planned to be used regularly but if a train is late it can't just reverse down the line without permission.

      There is the Frederick Junction almost a mile away from the Monocacy station. Freight trains go through there to Baltimore I believe. Not sure why they need a block signal either. The Frederick station is for the trains and buses. But mostly trains. Thx for watching! :)

      Nice video! 6 cars on 893! Wow. I remember just a few years ago when 892/893 was only 4 cars long (usually 2-3 single levels and 1-2 bilevels)
