Amtrak’s west bound Capitol Limited passing the historic ex-B&O station at Point of Rocks, MD on May 10, 2010 on CSX's Metroplitan Sub. This station was designed by noted architect E. Francis Baldwin and was completed in 1873. This location is at the junction of CSX's two former B&O lines at Point of Rocks, Maryland. On the left is the Old Main Line Sub, which reached here from Baltimore in 1832; on the right is the Metropolitan Sub, completed from Washington D.C. to Point of Rocks in 1873.
