Baltimore has a lot to offer the visitor in
the way of things to see and places to eat.
We have an excellent Little
Italy area off Pratt St and Eastern Ave, east of the Harbor - and if you stay on
Eastern Ave and continue east thru Fells Point, you will wind up going thru Greektown. As seen on the map, the Greektown area is also close to the two
main railroad yards of Baltimore and a couple of transit items to check out.
The Greektown and Highlandtown areas, as well as Fells Point, have seen a recent
shift towards being Hispanic, and as such, offer a completely new variety of
restaurants to feast on.
Along Lombard Street, there is an area called Corned
Beef Row, where there used to be oodles of Jewish owned delicatessens
- the best in town! It's not what it used to be, but there are still a few
there. It is just west of Central Ave. Places remaining are the
Weiss Deli, Atman's, Lenny's Deli, and Jack's.
I may someday even do a map of Fells Point, however, there are close to 60-70
bars, pubs, and restaurants to visit. Fells Point is THE place to be on
Halloween, if you're into that sort of thing.
The two Bayview yards (3)(4) are detailed on
I love trains, and I love signals. I am not an expert. I do these pages because I love spending my time doing them - although I do a reasonable amount of research to make sure the information
presented is accurate! :-) :-)
Please Note: Since the main focus of my two websites is railroad signals, the railfan guides are oriented towards the signal fan being able to locate them. For those of you into
the modeling aspect of our hobby, my indexa page has a list of almost everything railroad oriented I can think of to provide you with at least a few
pictures to help you detail your pike.
If this is a railfan page, every effort has been made to make sure that the information contained on this map and in this railfan guide is correct. Once in a while, an error may creep in, oooooooops,
oh well! :-)
My philosophy: Pictures and maps are worth a thousand words, especially for railfanning. Text descriptions only get you so far, especially if you get lost or disoriented. Take along good maps....
a GPS is OK to get somewhere, but maps are still better if you get lost! I belong to AAA, which allows you to get local maps for free when you visit the local branches. ADC puts out a nice series
of county maps for the Washington DC area, but their state maps do not have the railroads on them. If you can find em, I like the National Geographic map book of the U.S..... good, clear, and concise
graphics, and they do a really good job of showing you where tourist type attractions are, although they too lack the railroads. Other notes about specific areas will show up on that page if known.
BTW, floobydust is a term I picked up 30-40 years ago from a National Semiconductor data book, and means miscellaneous and/or other stuff.
Pictures and additional information is always needed if anyone feels inclined to take 'em, send 'em, and share 'em, or if you have something to add or correct.... credit is always given! BE NICE!!! Contact info
