Notes About Existing Stations...

Bard (MC&H) - Tracey (Pringle) Hinson writes: I lived in this house in the 1970's and was told that it served as a train station for passengers in the late 1800's, early 1900's.  It does have an enormous room at the side of the house that could have served as a passenger waiting area. There is also a smaller room near the tracks that possibly served as the ticketing area. I was told when originally built, the house/station also had rooms for rent. My parents left the property abandoned in the mid-late 70's and I believe nobody has lived there since. I have been to this house when I have visited family and although in bad condition, it could be possibly rehabilitated. --Tracey (Pringle) Hinson. Update: It appears that the building has been remodeled and now houses apartments (as of 2014).

Everett (H&BTM) - The Huntingdon and Broad Top Mountain RR that was part of the same corporation as the East Broad Top RR but was standard gauge. It ran from Huntingdon to just outside of Bedford (Mt. Dallas) and was abandoned in 1954. See this page for more info.
