This week on Georgetown Time Machine, GM returns to the wonderful collection of old Georgetown Branch photos by William Duvall. The photo is specifically of a train as is lumbers between Georgetown and Maryland in December 1967.
The particular spot is just east of Fletcher’s Boathouse. As you probably know, the Georgetown Branch was turned into the Capital Crescent Trail. So if you go to this spot today, you’ll see dozens of cyclists and walkers trundling along the same path.
There’s really not much more to say other than to say if you’ve ever wondered what the trail looked like when it had trains on it, well this is how. Definitely check out the website for more pictures of scenes along this line back when it was still an active rail line.
