Kilduff's Train Station page is not intended as a history of the old train stations in town, simply as a look through several old postcards and pictures to  see what Baltimore has to offer. Comments, as always, are welcome.

Mount Royal Station

       The Mount Royal Station has to be the most photographed train station in Baltimore. Postcards can be found of the old rail station for nearly any year.  

.....................
The five postcards seen below  are only a sample of the views taken of the old station over the years. No longer used as a train station, the building is now used as part of the Maryland Institute of Art campus.

Union Station
    Before Pennsylvania Station, Baltimore's main line train station was an older structure known as Union Station. Union Station was torn down and the current Penn Station was constructed at the same site, and for a while the newer train station went under the name of Union Station, later being changed to the current name. According to reports back in the day, the old station made it difficult to get to the trains, as you had to walk over the tracks to get to the boarding platform.

President Street Station
  Baltimore's oldest passenger station. What you see below is all that survives of the old station, which for years sat vacant. The station opened as a passenger station but in later years handled freight only. Apparently , some of the old station burned down in the 1980's . 
    The President Street Station had sheds that extended East and was later used as a freight station. The area around the station is prime commerical property today, but efforts were made to save the remaining section of the train station. Many years back, train sheds extended from the rear of the building.

Calvert Street Station

............


Looking off the Orleans Street Viaduct ( below ) , this " aerial " view of the Calvert Street Station shows a view that has completely changed today. The Standard Oil building is stands today ( converted into Condos ) and of course the Washington Monument is still there, but much of the view, including the smaller houses on Calvert Street have long been replaced. The pictures below shows the same view , but with the photographer on the ground this time. Before the Calvert Street Station, the site was reportedly a " Roman style " Amphitheatre.

Hillen Street Station

Picture to the below is NOT the old Hillen Street Station. It is close to the area where the old train station once stood and might have been part of the complex or a warehouse used in relation to the train station. The Hillen Street train Station was torn down years ago and so far, I haven't been able to find a picture to post.
