Seabrook is a station on MARC's Penn Line, a commuter rail line connecting Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, in Seabrook, Maryland, United States. It is located at 6221 Seabrook Road south of Lanham Severn Road (Maryland Route 564) in Seabrook, although MARC gives the location as being in Lanham, Maryland. The station is unstaffed and is located at the end of a dead-end street. Parking is available on the southeast corner of the official address, and also on the opposite side of the tracks on the northeast corner of Seabrook Road and Smith Avenue.

History[edit]

A Penn Central train passes Seabrook in 1969, with the former low-level northbound platform at bottom right

The present high-level platforms were built in the late 1980s, replacing bare asphalt platforms near the now-closed Seabrook Road level crossing.[2]
