Notes About Existing Stations...

Biscay (CM&St.P) - Depot was moved to Nowthen Threshing Show Grounds in Anoka County in 2001.

Hutchinson (St.PM&M) - According to the date built, this would have been during the St.PM&M era.

Lester Prairie (CM&St.P) - Now serves as "The Depot" gas station and convenience store.

Winsted (Luce Line) - There has been some controversy about whether this is the old station as the building had been moved from a location in the country, but it may have been moved more than once. A comparison of the old and newer photos tend to agree that this is the station as the buildings share the same profile.

Winsted (Luce Line) - This is a later metal replacement station.
