MTA Photo Policy

After having a conversation with Mr. Terry Owens of the MTA back in March of 2011, and informed him that there was no formal photography policy on the MTA's website, they finally posted one.  A Snag of it is below, and for more information regarding the MTA's photo policy, check out:


A decent chase map is in the works........

Below are photos of the station way before the Jones Falls Expressway was put in.  The top photo is the first station that was on the spot, and they had not built a retaining wall next to the creek, the driveway going to the station was not in place, and the freight lines going in front of the station had not been built yet. The third photo is a close-up screen grab of the middle pix.
