Notes About Existing Stations...

Alpha (CM&St.P) - The original location of this depot was on Railroad Avenue between Main and Knox Streets. I'm not sure if the station in the photo is the existing one or a previous station.

Jackson (CM&St.P) - According to the owner this station used to be two-storied, but the RR removed the second floor.
