Cumberland, MD is a tiny city of 21,000 located in western Maryland. The train makes its way at a grade straight through the center of town, and trains must generally make three stops at the station, first for the engineers to switch, then for sleeping car passengers and finally for the coaches which is a quick fresh-air stop. The station has a small 1970s era beige station building with a small unstaffed waiting area, (open and closed by a caretaker) with about 15 brown seats, and quite spotless. This building has a canopy over a portion of the station's simple concrete platform. The platform extends south from the only entrance where Front Street (parallel to the railroad tracks) curves and becomes Harrison Street to beneath I-68's viaduct. Beneath the main canopied area is a very short (maybe ten foot long) wooden mini-high level platform area. The main US post office and distribution center for the region is alongside the platform giving it a backdrop of postal service trucks.
