Notes
Bellefontaine
Before the CCC&ST.L owned the IB&W and CC&I, both railroads had stations in Bellefontaine at the site of the latter day CCC&St.L station at W. Chillicothe and Elm St. See this map of the station area from 1887 showing both stations and a shared freight facility. There was also a hotel on the site called Mesamore's Hotel (later known as the Commercial Hotel in the 1890s). There was a CS&C station at this location as early as 1875.
Bellefontaine This station sat on West Chillicothe Avenue. See this map of the station area from 1901. The original shared IB&W and CC&I freight facility was still used for the CCC&St.L at this time. The Big 4 Restaurant was located behind the passenger station.
Bellefontaine This freight station sat on West Auburn Street. See a map of its location from 1914.
Bellefontaine This combination station sat on the corner of Elm Street and  Buckingham Avenue. The station below was later added to the area.

Notes About Existing Stations...

Belle Center (CCC&St.L) - Depot is currently under restoration and owned by the village. The exterior has been restored and work is now underway on the interior as of 2014. The signals have been returned and a new street has been created to run in front of the depot.

East Liberty (T&OC) - Area is overgrown and building in bad shape. Here is an old photo.

West Liberty (CCC&St.L) - Moved. Now Marie's Candy Store. This station was built in 1926 when the West Liberty Cut-off was constructed by the Big 4. It was originally located on Township Highway 193 at Runkle Avenue (GPS: 40.251396,-83.77102). All prior stations were located on the old main line about one mile east of the current main line on Baird Street.
