Maps are the basic building blocks for my railfan guides. They offer the railfan a perspective which is lacking in other forms of railfan guides, not to say that there aren't some good non-map oriented guides out there. But a map which is annotated with the things that interest railfans helps you plan your trip. You can see for yourself if a particular item is something you want to spend your time chasing after. Some railfans may like the old buildings, some not. Some guys like to visit the yards, others do not. Some just want to know where the busiest place is so they can maximize their photo time. So I present to ya'll everything I know of that might interest any and all of you. I also know that a lot of railfans are into the fire and police scene, so I try to include those points of interest on my maps (and any other "neat" things).
Since starting the Baltimore Guide, I have expanded the scope and selection by covering DC, and also have a Central Maryland section.
Please note: This and all of my pages are done with Frontpage, a Microsoft product. If you use a non-uS browser such as Mozilla or Firefox, I can not guarantee that you will see the pages the way I designed them.....

In case you're wondering how I came to number the maps... there's no system to it, it was pretty much when I did the maps, starting with the Towson to Cockeysville area I live in. I generally went from north to south, wound up numbering one of them 16 for some unknown reason, then a few years later, came back and added maps 14 and 15, realizing that the areas covered by them wasn't covered by any of the other maps.
RAILFAN MAPS of MARYLAND
and the CENTRAL MARYLAND RAILFAN GUIDE
In an effort to keep
overhead simple for me,
I have decided to direct you to the appropriate pages for specific sections instead of trying to keep 3 or 4 pages updated with the same info....
