Notes
Heisley Station There may have been a station here in the very early days of the RR. This was where Heisley Road crosses the tracks east of Mentor.
Lane
Station
There may have been a station here in the very early days of the RR. This was where Lane Road crosses the tracks west of Perry.
Madison This station sat on the east side of SR 528. It was used by the Lake County Road Department prior to being demolished in 1999. This was the original station which was moved across the tracks (to the north side) and connected to the original freight house upon construction of a newer brick station across the tracks (on the south side) sometime around the early 1900s. The original freight house was located at GPS: 41.775730, -81.045416.
Madison This brick station was demolished sometime prior to 1997. Access to the brick station was via Safford Street by crossing the NKP tracks. It was located at GPS: 41.775695, -81.044521.
Madison The passenger station was on the east side of SR 528 and on the south side of tracks at GPS: 41.774853, -81.046198.
Madison This freight station, built in 1882, was on the west side of North Lake Street (SR 528)
(GPS: 41.774805, -81.047715). A group was working on taking the depot apart piece by piece than moving it behind the old fire station #1 and restoring it. It was previously fixed up some, but again fell into disrepair. The process was delayed a few years ago due to insurance issues with NS railway and their budget. It was torn down by the railroad on 8/8/2016.
Mentor The station was on the east side of Center St. on the north side of the tracks. It probably started as a passenger station and later served as a freight station as only one station building is shown there on 1941 maps.
Painesvile A frame station existed here before the stone station was built in 1893. It was essentially in the same location (on the north side of Railroad Street) as the station that replaced it. It was moved across the tracks next to the original freight station on Storrs Street to make way for the new passenger station. It served as a freight station until both freight stations were demolished.
Painesville The passenger and freight stations were on the west side of State Street.
Painesville The passenger station was on the SW side of Richmond Street next to the power plant. The freight station was farther to the SW of the passenger station.
Perry Passenger station.
Reynolds There was a small passenger shelter here.
