Milford Center This station sat on the north side of the tracks on the south side of Railroad Street just west of Mill Street. The station was built sometime after 1901 and was gone by 1945, but a small freight station remained after that date along the transfer track to the CCC&St.L.

Notes About Existing Stations...

New Dover (CCC&St.L) - The Big four ran this line as a branch from Springfield to Delaware, the tracks survive from Springfield to Mechanicsburg servicing the elevators there. The station's original location was at the south end of Church Street (GPS: 40.246204,-83.300893). Just a few places are left north of that point where the railbed is identifiable. There still is a formidable bridge at White Sulpher, crossing the Scioto River (there are foundation stones from the station at White Sulpher still visible). Wlater Low moved the station to his family farm in the 1920 (the Low Family have been on this farm continuously since 1844).

Raymond (T&OC) - Moved from tracks which are south of town. Local historical society has a depot replica on SR 347, not to be confused with this original station.
