Got a spare hour?
Unlike Union Station in Washington, DC, small train stations are a great way to spend some time with your kids trainspotting.
Right on time!
If you time it right, a mere thirty minutes at the Germantown MARC train station offers the chance to feel a CSX rumble through, catch a glimpse of Amtrak's Capitol Limited flying by, and then experience the powerful presence of MARC's GP40s as they pull into the station to pick up or let off passengers.
After that, it's time to head on over to Tony and Linda's Country Cone Cafe to enjoy some ice cream on their patio.
