Hewitt  
Lee's Siding This station was three miles north of Long Prairie.
Little Sauk The little Sauk station that still exists is likely the portable depot from Round Prairie, so there was likely a larger station here before that.
Philbrook  
Round Prairie  
Spaulding  
Staples This frame station most likely predated the 1909 brick station.
Ward Springs Previously called Birch Lake City.

Notes About Existing Stations...

Grey Eagle (GN) - Apparently the 2nd NP depot in Grey Eagle. Note the beveled operators bay, not the straight push out. This style was common on many Missouri Pacific, Rock Island & MK&T but not on the NP. - James Burt

Round Prairie (GN) - This is likely the Round Prairie depot as Little Sauk never had a portable depot according to company records. Round Prairie (the next town north) did have portable depot according to GN records.

Verndale (NP) - Station was sold to private owners in 1970 and subsequently moved to Staples, MN.
