Edgewood is a passenger rail station on MARC Train's Penn Line. The station is also on the southern section of the Northeast Corridor; however, most Amtrak service does not stop. Southbound Northeast Regional train #151, which is cross-ticketed as a MARC train, stops at Edgewood to receive MARC passengers.[1]

Edgewood station serves the southern terminus of Maryland Route 755 which terminates at an entrance to the Aberdeen Proving Ground. Parking is available on both sides of the tracks. The station is also located east of Amtrak's Edgewood Interlocking Tower, previously owned by the Pennsylvania Railroad.[2]
