Can anyone speak to the potential of a new train station for the Camden Line in Riverside? I know KLynch had the discussion with Delegate Clippinger, and I wasn't sure where that all stood. Thanks.

Just curious.. how would that work? Would the train terminate at Riverside as opposed to Camden Yards or would there be a separate train on the Camden Line that would run from DC to Riverside-Baltimore? Maybe I am missing something but isnt Riverside further east of the Camden Line and not part of the current existing route between Dorsey and Camden Yards???

They run on the same tracks. Those trains park by Riverside - south of Riverside Park and north of I95.

That yard does not have passenger access; I know guys that work maintenance down there.

It sounded like it was something that was not in the very near future at this point. I can't imagine building a new station costs very much money in comparison to other transportation projects, so with the growth of South Baltimore, I wouldn't be surprised to see something like this pick up steam pretty quickly.

Yeah, the delegate was talking about putting something more of a station there as well. So at least people could board trains. I wouldn't think you'd need much,

I think that line already has too many stops, but if other Camden destination folks don't mind adding a few minutes to their commute, then I wouldn't be opposed to the idea.

Wouldn't it be the first stop, therefore not adding any stops for anyone already on route?

I'm not certain that I follow. If there are currently X number stations now, then isnt the proposal now (X+1)?

The Camden Line starts and ends at Camden Yards. Riverside would just be one stop farther south and the trains already stay there overnight. Therefore it would start and stop at Riverside as opposed to Camden Yards, only adding an additional stop for those riders who board at Riverside.
