Perryville is the northern most stop in the MARC commuter train network, and sits at the north end of Amtrak's Susquehanna River bridge.  Sight lines are fair, but you couldn't get really good shots of the whole train without going to places you're not supposed to.  Saturday was a good day, and the numbers of people coming thru the train was at a good pace.  Slowly, but surely, more and more people are learning of the train.

  A photo by Gavin C who works for Amtrak... Thanks Gavin!

      A number of displays were set up inside the MARC station.

  As luck would have it.....

 The Perryville RR Museum had a "cart" set up outside "selling" shirts and other stuff for a donation.

  A MARC representative was on-hand.

  Amtrak freebies were being handed out outside.

    The left shot was taken from the north side of the bridge next to Roger's Tavern, the right photo was taken from the south side of the bridge from VA property.
