AND
Built between 1907-1914, this station was on the north side of Paint Street just east of North Water Street at the diamond (GPS: 39.537189, -83.445155). It was shared by the B&O SW and CH&D. There was a smaller B&O station at this location prior to this one (as shown on the 1907 map).
Washington Court House The B&O had a freight station at the north corner of Paint and Hinde on a spur track at GPS: 39.537748, -83.444051.
Washington Court House Before the B&O built a new, larger station at the Paint Street location (see above), the smaller original Columbus & Cincinnati Midland RR station was at that same location. The Midland station was destroyed by the 1885 cyclone which leveled a good part of the city.
Washington Court House This narrow gague RR station (before it became part of the CH&D) was on South Fayette Street just to the NW of Paint Creek. It was on the NW side of the tracks. The D&I station was destroyed by the 1885 cyclone which leveled a good part of the city.

Notes About Existing Stations...

Jeffersonville (DT&I) - The building has been in poor condition for quite sometime. It is next to a siding and has plywood sheeting patches over a hole on the wall facing the tracks where the bay window of a train order station would have been. One neighbor said a team track was located across the tracks at the end of Walnut Street, a block south of the location of the passenger depot, which was demolished in the early 1980s. Old maps do not show a railroad building at this location. Can anyone confirm that this building was in fact a DT&I structure?

Milledgeville (CH&D) - After going out of service, the station served as an office for the grain elevator. It was moved sometime in the 60s or 70s and became a residence. 

Washington Court House (DT&I) - Unique pre-fab building made of steel (manufactured by local DT&I on-line customer), currently a used-car sales lot. Active agency and section house until 1980s. Located at the junction of the DT&I main line (torn up, now a hiking trail), PRR Morrow-Trinway line (also torn up), and active section of stub of CSX (ex B&O Dayton-Wellston line). Restored crossing guard's shack across street in small park.

Washington Court House (CH&D) - Rambling old freight station now used as livestock-feeder factory. Still has platforms, ramps, etc. 1 block south of ex-PRR stations.

Washington Court House (C&MV) - Well-preserved, in continuous use since rail service ended with Conrail startup in 1976. Still has ramps and team track platforms. Across roadbed from former passenger station. Still very PRR-like appearance. C&MV = Cincinnati & Muskingum Valley.
