Notes About Existing Stations...

Brisbin (PRR) - Brisbin was on the Moshannon Branch of the PRR. Still standing as of 10/2011.

Burnside (Beech Creek Extension) - Owned by the Borough of Burnside. Attempts underway to get it added to National Register of Historic Places and obtain funding for restoration. The BCE RR included the Canoe Creek Railroad and Clearfield Southern Railroad and was a separate company from the Beech Creek Railroad although both were later part of the NYC.

Chester Hill (Beech Creek) - This was the NYC/Beech Creek Railroad's "Philipsburg" station. The Borough of Philipsburg is actually across the Moshannon Creek from this station. This was built as a combination type station. The passanger and second floor station master's residence were razed after fire damage. All that remains is the freight shed portion of the building. Station is used for storage by JJ Powell Oil Company.

Clearfield (PRR) - Tracks were in the street on Third Street. This has been a laundromat since the 1960s.

Curwensville (PRR) - This is at the exact same location as the original Tyrone & Clearfield station. It may be the original station or it may have just been built at the same spot. A station is shown here on the 1878 map.

Houtzdale (Alley Popper) - The "Alley Popper" RR was built as a competitor to the PRR in the Moshannon Valley. It was in financial distress for its entire life and ceased operations in 1931 and was abandoned in 1936. The "Alley Popper" was its more popular name and is more recognized than its barrage of formal names over its troubled life. Owning Railroads: Altoona & Philipsburg Connecting RR, New York & Pittsburgh Airline RR, Philipsburg RR, Philipsburg & Susquehanna Valley RR, and Pittsburgh & Susquehanna RR. Leasing Railroads: Pittsburgh, Johnstown, Ebensburg & Eastern RR, New York & Pittsburgh Central RR and  Philipsburg & Johnstown RR.

Rockton (BR&P) - Station was originally built in 1898 for Buffalo, Rochester & Pittsburgh Railroad at Rockton PA on the Clearfield Branch.  The depot was dismantled and first moved to Sloan Cornell's Penn View Mountain Railroad near Blairsville PA in the 1970's.  The depot was dismantled and moved a second time to Gettysburg PA on Sloan Cornell's Gettysburg Railroad in the late 70's.  An expansion of the nearby Gettysburg College later necessitated the station to be dismantled and placed in storage.  The station was moved a third time and recently reassembled in Kane PA on Cornell's Knox and Kane Railroad.  The reassembly was in progress when the tornado destroyed several piers of the Kinzua Bridge.  The station has been finished, but regular passenger and freight service has ceased on the K&K, and the railroad is for sale. - Kevin Moore, 2007.

Smoke Run (PRR) - Moved to present location late 1960's.

Unknown (????) - This station was moved from ??? and is now being used as a cabin. Could this be the Lumber City Beech Creek (NYC) station? Here is an old photo of the Lumber City depot. It is not the NYC station that served Curry Run.

Winterburn (Allegheny Valley RR) - Used as a hunting cabin, a two-story addition was put on it in the 1930's. Original station was about 11' X 22' inside plus porches. The original cement steps are still out front.
