Rain Damages WMSR Track, Trips Cancelled

Recent rains damaged the tracks of the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad, prompting the tourist railroad to cancel trains through Sept. 11.

Officials said the damage occurred to about 250 feet of track on the West Virginia side of the North Branch Potomac River.

That meant trains were unable to cross the river to reach the station in Cumberland, Maryland. No equipment was damaged by the flooding.

Workers have since been dispatched to repair the damaged track. The next scheduled excursions on the WMSR are set for Sept. 15.
