When I was active duty coast guard I would pass through there a couple times a week, what you want to know? There is a creepy baby doll wedged in between some piles on the 695 bridge, fyi.

It’s an unused train bridge next to a drawbridge next to a drawbridge

Different swing bridge, that's near Port Covington and was built by a different railroad. This is on Curtis Creek and actually gets used from time to time I think.

It is the Marley Creek draw bridge. It is most definitely in use, daily by CSX.

What do you want to know? It’s a pretty unexciting industrial area on the water.

Coast guard repair yard. Their main shipyard. Just got money for an upgrade.

I wanna know about the abandoned hulks on the bank- what were those ships? What did they do? (One looks like a tug)

They've got stories to tell.

One of the hulks in the shallows is the remains of the Emma Giles, a paddlewheel ferry that provided service from Baltimore up and down the Bay. There's also at least one WWII era ferrocement ship in the area.

Here's a presentation from the state's underwater archaeologist:

I should've added this in but I'm talking about the swing bridge like is it in use has anyone ever seen a train on it stuff like that.

Never seen it in use but you could hear it sometimes in surrounding neighborhoods

I took a ride on a Coast Guard cutter as they placed the FSK Buoy and went under the bridge. Kind of a long video mostly because of a speech later in the video but you can see this area from the water here:

Looks very much like an old bridge I flew my drone over near the new Top Golf. Would have been neat to see it still in action. Didn't realize there were several of them around.

Its just a little northwest of Walnut Point. If you hit the truck repair shop, you’ve gone too west.
