Perryville is a passenger rail station in Perryville, Maryland that is served by the MARC Penn Line. The station is located on the southern part of the Northeast Corridor, however Amtrak does not service the station. A single Amtrak train—Northeast Regional #151—stops at Perryville to board MARC ticket holders. The station is also the northernmost in the MARC system and the terminus for the Penn Line.
Perryville Station was originally built by the Philadelphia, Wilmington and Baltimore Railroad in 1905 and adopted by the Pennsylvania Railroad, and is located within a wye for the PW&B's Port Deposit Branch. When Amtrak took over passenger service in 1971, the station was closed but later in the decade became a stop for the Chesapeake between Washington D.C., and Philadelphia, until it was acquired by MARC. The station was remodeled to its original specifications in 1992, and is located near an Amtrak maintenance facility.
Perryville station also contains the Perryville Railroad Museum, open on Sunday afternoons, which includes a model train layout and exhibits about the history of railroads in Perryville.
