Western Maryland Railway 21st Railroad Bridge

North Branch Potomac River Railroad Bridge

Termed the "21st Bridge," the connection between the Western Maryland Railway and the B&O got its name from the B&O's crossing of the Potomac River, 21 miles west of Cumberland. The Western Maryland crosses over the main line of the B&O on the Maryland side of the river. At this point, the B&O crossed into West Virginia on a route through Keyser. The Western Maryland continued on the Maryland side toward Bloomington.
