of course, as a baltimorean i'd rather get an infill penn line station at upton that could serve as a transfer station to/from MTA metro. i'm not sure what the configuration is like below ground there but the above ground entrance is less than one block north of the amtrak/MARC tunnel. i personally have met a handful of people that currently or used to commute to the dc area from places like owings mills or reisterstown so it seems like a no-brainer to me. i don't know the history of either of these services so i can only assume that this wasn't done in the first place because of some issue with how old and structurally unstable the amtrak tunnel is, making its alteration cost-prohibitive? maybe if those NEC improvements ever happen...
