Aberdeen is a train station in Aberdeen, Maryland, on the Northeast Corridor. It is served by Amtrak's Northeast Regional and MARC Train's Penn Line.[2] The station was originally built by the Philadelphia, Wilmington and Baltimore Railroad approximately in 1898, and inherited by the Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington Railroad.[3] The current station is a modern structure built in 1943 by Lester C. Tichy (1905–1981) for the Pennsylvania Railroad,[4] and located at 18 East Bel Air Avenue at the intersection of Pulaski Boulevard (US 40) and West Bel Air Avenue (MD 132). It contains a 1960s-style pedestrian tunnel, with one of the entrances located at the former north station house. It also contains a pedestrian bridge built in 1982. Aberdeen was also served by an 1886-built Baltimore and Ohio Railroad station along what is now the CSX Philadelphia Subdivision just north of this one on West Bel Air Avenue.[5]
