I was real young when the tower was still there. The only thing I remember about it is walking up the steps and getting a splinter in my hand and the guy at the top took my splinter out and then gave me a deck of cards with a cat sleeping on them, I think I might still have them around here someplace. LOL And then later riding the train into Rockwood and the train stopped for a long time and my grandfather pulled his car up next to the train and taking me out the train window and him and I went to the bar until the train started running again...LOL

That picture of the old railway station certainly brings back memories. My Dad was an engineer on the B & O railroad. When I was little we waited at the station to go shopping in Cumberland, Maryland and then rode the train back home and walked to West Side. Thanks for the memories.

Nothing negative intended, but the photograph is not of the railroad station. It is of a control tower on the east side of the tracks. The actual B&O Railroad Station was on the west side of the tracks facing the main street. It would have been on the left side of the photograph, but out of view in this picture.
