Walkersville Southern is Founded
From 1991 through 1993, Walkersville Southern volunteers cleared the right-of-way of brush and debris. In 1993, the Maryland Department of Transportation chose Walkersville Southern as the operator of the Walkersville-Frederick line. Rebuilding began immediately.
In 1995, Walkersville Southern began reconstruction of the Monocacy River bridge. Limited excursions were run in 1995 while the work progressed. With the completion of the project in March 1996, the first trains in more than 20 years crossed the Monocacy River. The 1997 season marked the first year of both Saturday and Sunday operations, with three trains departing the Walkersville station each day. The 1998 season marked the first time in more than 25 years that trains had run to Route 26, the current terminus of the line.
In 2009, the State of Maryland granted access to three more miles of track north of the existing station. Work began immediately to upgrade the track, and we currently run limited operations north out of Walkersville on this rail.
