Verify List

Updated: 1/4/17

 In keeping this page, I frequently receive tips of one kind or another from a variety of sources that other stations not currently listed on the County Pages are still standing. Newspapers, magazines, books, newsletters, pamphlets--all are valuable for the hints and suggestions that they give, as are the reports of friends, field operatives, and Internet surfers. Occasionally specific details are supplied,but more often the report is on the order of "I heard from someone that Smalltown Station was moved years ago to Bigville." Anyone with information on any of the stations below is asked to e-mail me. In particular, I am interested in knowing the current and, if moved, the original location (town, address) of the station; what type it is (passenger, freight, combination); its current use (municipal, railroad, business, private, vacant); whether tracks are still there and what railroad, if any, is currently operating; and any other interesting notes or features.
