The train station at Point of Rocks in Maryland has been operating since 1873.  Today it services a whopping 140 passengers a day.  It's not a whole lot, but for those 140 passengers, it offers an easy and efficient way to live in rural Maryland and work in Washington, DC.

I took this image using a medium format, film camera back in the mid 1990s.  The station looks a bit different today.  There are now new passenger platforms and platform shelters.  While that helps keep the passengers comfortable in bad weather, it takes away from the historic aesthetics. 

I used Kodak TMAX 100 film for this image.  I developed the film myself at a local community college photo lab.  More recently, I scanned it using an Epson V750 scanner.  After cleaning up the dust particles (i.e., from the film scan), I played with the contrast and brightness a little to make this final image.
