About this title


Hagerstown, Maryland's history is inextricably linked to the railroad. Hagerstown's nickname of the "Hub City" comes from the wheel-spoke effect that the many rail lines in and out of the city created. The first train cars from the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad reached the limits of Washington County on December 3, 1834, where the line crossed into Harper's Ferry, West Virginia. The railroad was instrumental in transporting both goods and passengers and helped spell the demise of the C & O Canal. Through the years, the railroads continued to ply the tracks through the county providing work for many, and transportation of freight and passenger service from Baltimore in the east to the great expanse of the country to the west. Today, passenger service no longer runs through Hagerstown, but freight service continues and trains are far from forgotten.

About the Author:

Using archival photographs, Hagerstown: Railroading around the Hub City presents the distinctive stories from the past that shape the character of this community today. Local author Mary H. Rubin has culled vintage images primarily from the Hagerstown Roundhouse Museum and the Maryland Cracker Barrel magazine in this historical retrospective. She manages to preserve a bit of history for rail enthusiasts and all who read this volume.
