The Camden Line is a MARC commuter rail line that runs between Union Station, Washington, D.C., and Camden Station, Baltimore, Maryland, over the CSX Capital Subdivision, and Baltimore Terminal Subdivision. Service began along this route in 1835 as part of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad (B&O), making it one of the oldest passenger rail lines in the U.S. still in operation.[2] The Camden Line is the shortest MARC line and along with the Brunswick Line, is the successor to the B&O commuter services.
