Notes About Existing Stations...

Jackson (Ohio Southern) - Houses a flower shop.

Jackson (Jackson & Wellston Belt) - This station was built by the Wellston & Jackson Belt Railway in 1894 or 1895. The W&J Belt was owned by the C&O and was an interurban electric. That interurban line ended service in 1915 and the C&O made a coal carrying road out of it. The B&O was next to the C&O tracks but the Jackson B&O station was about 300 yards south and on the other side of the tracks. The B&O and B&O SW, DT&I, C&O and CH&D and even the Iron Railroad from Ironton went into the Jackson/Wellston coal fields in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Most ran tracks within spitting distance, minimum, to rock throwing distance, maximum throughout this area. Across the tracks to the west of the C&O depot in Wellston was the two story CH&D depot. South of them was the DT&I and south of it was the B&O.

Wellston (CHV&T) - Restored. Now a community center. Was also used by the Wellston Jackson Belt Railway.
