Jamison Yard was located on the western side of Hagerstown, MD. Jamison Yard was a busy place in WM days with the high priority Alpha Jet freight trains, Reading, B&O and N&W run thru trains. Jamison Yard also has a hump, that was used to easily switch freight cars to certain trains based on their destination. When I first began taking photos on the Western Maryland at Hagerstown, the entire yard had been removed. Only a small track to off load grain and an old car shop builing remained. Lately telephone poles had began to be loaded here regulary and I remember a track being reinstalled thru the middle of the old yard. I plan to go back soon and explore Jamison Yard more indepth.
Today CSX trains are generally put toeghter and leave from a section of the old yard. Usually all westbounds will run their engines from the cab track at Hagerstown west through the yard where they will couple to their freight cars and go any switching before leaving for the B&O at Cherry Run. Occasionaly D721 will pickup only a few cars needed to switch the industries at Newgate and run west to switch out the cars. The train will then return with the others cars it had picked up and add them to its train before continueing west itself. Always check Jamison yard located behind the Lowe's Hardware store in Hagerstown before driving west along the WM looking for a train, one may be ready to leave.
