The Maryland and Pennsylvania Railroad, affectionately known as the Ma & Pa, connected Baltimore and York on a narrow-gauge line that traced a meandering, scenic 77-mile route. The village at Muddy Creek Forks sits along the railroad line. It is being preserved as an example of a typical railroad community in the steam-engine era. A project of the Maryland & Pennsylvania Railroad Preservation Authority, it depicts what it was like to live in the 'Forks' in 1915, including several original buildings. Work continues on restoring additional buildings at the site. The train, store, and buildings are open during our operating season (June – Sept). The grounds are open for self-guided tours year-round.
