The former B&P Junction interlocking tower, which from 1910 until 1988 served as a proud sentinel to the railroading just south of Baltimore’s Penn Station, and almost got lost to the wrecking, but afterwards, has found a new home. The town of Sykesville, Maryland, acquired salvageable parts to the structure and reconstructed it in 2000; it opened in November 2002 as a   Post Office and welcome/information center. The site for the tower is along Oklahoma Avenue, in front of a former Pullman sleeping car, not far from the old Sykesville train station.
