Might you refer to the Port Road, which streches from Columbia to Perryville MD along the river?

if so, yes. The line sees decent traffic, though 90% is nocturnal. It's NS's line. There is also a few that divert to the NS Columbia line to Dillerville yd in Lancaster.

I live in this area and follow the traffic often. You local? Just be careful, NS is NS and they don't hesitate to run you in. :roll:
