Notes About Existing Stations...

Canton (CMSt.P&P) - Here is an old photo showing the depot photographed from the top of the mill when the railroad was still in service. As of 2017 some restoration work has begun on this privately-owned depot.

Lanesboro (Replica) - This is a replica of the original CMStP&P station that was here. It is a very plain building as was the original station. It serves as the home of the Lanesboro Chamber Of Commerce.

Peterson (CMSt.P&P) - This station was relocated one block from its original location.

Prosper (CMSt.P&P) - Owned by Prosper Lumber Co. and used for storage. It appears to be on the original site. The town of Prosper is no longer incorporated. The Lumber company address is Mabel, MN, the nearby community. The owner of Prosper Lumber, Allan Daul, also owns the depot at Harmony and is responsible for restoring it.

Rushford - Built by CMStP&P predecessor line Southern Minnesota Railroad.
