WB Tower in Brunswick, Maryland closed for good on Friday December 9, 2011 at 8:45pm. Control will now be by the Dispatcher in Baltimore. The old interlocking had electro-pneumatic switches. No indication that the tower or its model board will be moved or saved.

Norm, did you really mean Jacksonville, as opposed to Baltimore, or am I mistaken?

The dispatchers for this region have all moved to Baltimore from Jacksonville. The are located on the property at Halethorpe. Not sure just how far geographically their control extends.
