Odenton is a passenger rail station on the MARC Penn Line between Washington, D.C., Baltimore, MD and Perryville, MD. The station is located along Amtrak's high-speed Northeast Corridor; however, Amtrak does not stop at this station. Both platforms at the station are high-level and are among the longest in the MARC system.
Odenton Station was originally built in 1872 by the Baltimore and Potomac Railroad which was later merged into the Pennsylvania Railroad on November 1, 1902. The station survived the merger between the New York Central Railroad and the PRR that formed Penn Central; however, upon the establishment of Amtrak in 1971 passenger service to the station ceased, although it was used as a maintenance-of-way storage facility. MARC reopened the station for local commuter service in 1989.
