Monocacy is a passenger rail station on the MARC Brunswick Line between Washington, D.C. and Frederick, MD. This station is one of two stations on the Frederick extension.[1] It is also the only station on the Brunswick Line other than Union Station to have a high-level platform. There is also a low level platform at the north end of the station.[citation needed]

Monocacy station is located at 7800 Genstar Drive, a cul-de-sac with a large parking lot off the east side of Maryland Route 355 in Frederick, Maryland. It was built on the old Frederick Branch of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. The architects of Cochran, Stephenson & Donkervoet, Inc. designed the small station to resemble B&O stations from the past.[citation needed]
