Springfield This is the "newer" union station built in 1910. It was on Washington Street at Spring Street (GPS: 39.921812,-83.806959). It was demolished in 1969 to make way for the new Spring Street bridge. Spring Street was cut off in 1909, so this bridge was a restoration of Spring as a through street. The passenger station site itself is now a parking lot for Clark State Community College. Most of the Springfield freight and passenger facilities met their end in the late 1960s and early 1970s when the transportation hub area surrounding the NYC passenger station were demolished in an urban renewal project. --Scott Trostel
Springfield This is the old union station. It sat on the SW corner of Washington Street and South Limestone Street (GPS: 39.922014,-83.808984). It was demolished in 1910 and the location became known as Big 4 Park.

The DT&I had two passenger stations in town at different times. Until 1897 it used the old "Union Passenger Station," then moved into its own station on North Limestone on the Springfield belt line of the Ohio Southern, a forerunner of the DT&I. It was closed in 1932 and all DT&I trains went to the PRR station. In 1937 they moved across the street into the DT&I's South Limestone Street freight house. It was then used as a joint freight and passenger station for the DT&I's mixed train until May 8, 1954, when the DT&I ended all passenger service. - Scott Trostel
Springfield There was a freight station near the NW end of Cliff Street (GPS: 39.929373,-83.81511). It is the smaller building in the foreground of the photo. The larger building in the background was the old Springfield Electric Railway car shop. The frieght station may have also served the trolley line originally, but it is labeled as the Erie frieght depot on the Sanborn map from 1955. This station was not located on the Erie line as Springfield suburban railroad handled the cars from Maitland to the freight house. It was torn down sometime between 2008-2010.

Notes About Existing Stations...

Enon (Erie) - This station was built sometime prior to 1886. The building also served as a grain store in the old days.

Jackson Center (Ohio Southern) - This station was moved from Jackson Center, in Shelby County, by a private individual in the 1970s. It was restored and maintained in near original condition some 40 miles from its prior location. It features the distinctive 1920 style of Henry Ford when he owned the D T & I railroad and selected gray as the station color and with large signs. A very good example of Ford influence on the railroads under his ownership in that era. - Scott Trostel

South Charleston (DT&I) - The bay window and roof overhang on the track side of the building had been removed by the DT&I many years ago, but were reinstalled during the restoration.
