Dickerson is a passenger rail station on the MARC Brunswick Line between Washington, D.C., and Martinsburg, WV (with an extension to Frederick, MD). This station was designed by E. Francis Baldwin and built by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad in 1891. It is the last station Frederick bound trains pass before branching onto the Frederick Branch.[1]
