Rail Service

Jefferson County is an incredibly convenient location to access by commuter rail service. The Maryland Area Regional Commuter (MARC) train system offers daily service to Washington, DC’s Union Station and other nearby destinations via the Brunswick Line. This line has origination stations in both Martinsburg and Harpers Ferry and includes an extension to Frederick, Maryland. Stops along the Brunswick Line include Washington, DC, and several metropolitan Maryland-area communities such as Gaithersburg, Rockville, and Silver Spring. Amtrak provides passenger service from both the Martinsburg and Harpers Ferry MARC stations.

Commercial rail service also contributes to Jefferson County’s ideal location. The county is located in a prime portion of Norfolk-Southern Railroad’s extensive network, offering direct accessibility to containers, equipment, and logistics solutions. The Front Royal terminal, located fewer than 50 miles to the south, provides intermodal capabilities and services to both national and international customers. CSX mainlines cross Jefferson County and connects to over 2,000 miles of track in West Virginia alone, and TRANSFLO offers bulk rail-to-truck or truck-to-rail commodity service from nearby Clarksburg and Fairmont.
