Looking "east" at the Port Covington Yard in May, 1978. Notice the grain silos in the distance still read "WESTERN MARYLAND RAILWAY". These silos are now gone but are shown being dynamited in the forth or fifth season of HBO's "The Wire". (photo by Jack Brown)

Looking east towards the Hanover Street overpass and then west towards the power plant on March 15, 2013. These tracks were once part of the "Classification Yard" here at Port Covington. Today they serve as CSX's connection to the WM and remining business served at Port Covington. The power plant switch from coal after the WM/Chessie ceased running trains to the port.
