WMSR Moves Out of Cumberland Depot

The Western Maryland Scenic Railroad has closed its offices in the Cumberland, Maryland, railroad station.

In a cost cutting move, WMSR has moved its offices to its shop complex in Ridgeley, West Virginia.

The tourist railroad expects to lose $650,000 this year and moving its offices will enable it to save money by avoiding rent and a per-passenger use fee collected by the State of Maryland.

The state owns the depot in Cumberland. WMSR excursion trains will continue to stop at the station.

Currently, trains are not operating due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Service is projected to resume on Oct. 1 with fall foliage trips.
