Remarks & Notes 
Tucked in a bowled out hollow in the northern outskirts of downtown Baltimore stands this stone monument and a reminder of the city's past in railroad history. The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad's Mount Royal Station was conceived by B&O architect extraordinaire E. Francis Baldwin using Romanesque and Renaissance styling and built of Maryland granite trimmed with Indiana limestone. It opened on September 1, 1896 in the city's Bolton Hill neighborhood and served as a stop on the railroads Royal Blue Line between New York and Washington DC. It sits adjacent to the northern entrance to the B&O's Belt Line's 1-1/2 mile long Howard Street Tunnel which is enclosed under the renovated train shed as seen to the right. The 150 foot tall clock tower can be seen in the surrounding neighborhood. The Maryland Institute College of Art purchased the station in the 1960's and renovated the structures for use as part of their campus.

An ongoing/growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of railroads because most of us don't go out after sundown or before sunrise. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)
