The Western Maryland Railroad serviced Frederick, Maryland with a branch that dropped South from the main line. [I have been corrected by Bob who said "This is the former Pennsylvania Railroad's "Frederick Secondary", which ran from Hanover, PA to Frederick, MD."] While a good deal of this branch has been abandoned, part of it still operates as the Maryland Midland Railroad.
House on Glade Road off Route 194 in Frederick County. Just northeast of Frederick. Take off the satellite dish and the propane tank and you are back in the time of the steam engines. Maryland Midland RR at Woodsboro, Maryland  off Rt. 194.  This is where the active track on the spur really starts.  South of this is unused track. Maryland Midland RR hopper at Woodsboro off Rt. 194.  In this area were a bunch of tank cars parked and from the look of them, unused.
