Dubois The original wood frame BR&P station here was on the north side of Long Avenue on the west side of the tracks at GPS: 41.121924, -78.765700. Although the new brick station was built in 1894, the original station survived and stood vacant for a few years after as it is still shown on the 1896 map as being vacant. Is is not shown on the 1901 map.
Dubois A freight station was built on the north side of Long Avenue on the west side of the tracks sometime between 1896-1901 at GPS: 41.121422, -78.765895. This freight station was enlarged sometime between 1906-1913.
DuBois This station was on the east side of US-219 along what is now the Beaver Meadow Trail at GPS: 41.120096, -78.758675. This was a terminal-type station as the tracks from the station spur ended here.
Dubois The original passenger station was on what is now Park Place at GPS: 41.126784, -78.754261. The first station was a two-story (although in the photo, it appears to be three stories) wood frame station which was replaced by the brick PRR station. This building was a store owned by John Dubois which later came to house the PRR station. It remained in service until sometime between 1906-1913.

This station was on Slab Run Road in the NW corner of the diamond at GPS: 41.142127, -78.794597. Although most of falls Creek is in Jefferson County, the PRR and BR&P stations were just over the line in Clearfield County.
Falls Creek The BR&P station was in the SW corner of the diamond just south of where F.C. tower still stands today (as of 2015) off Slab Run Road. It was at GPS: 41.141886, -78.793969.

Houtzdale On the 1894 map, the passenger station is shown at 726 Hannah Street (GPS: 40.825277, -78.352567) (now a deli?). A building still stands there with the same profile as that on the map. So, this building may have been the first A&P station, or this building may have been built there after the A&P station was torn down or moved. More research is needed on the date of the existing building.

Irvona Reports say it was moved from Irvona and rebuit in Blain City in a backyard there. Anyone have exact location if it does exist?
Irvona

1895 CLEARFIELD COUNTY RAILROAD MAP
Notes About Existing Stations...

Brisbin (PRR) - Brisbin was on the Moshannon Branch of the PRR. Station is in its original location here. May be an original Phillipsburg & Moshannon station as it is shown as such on the 1894 map.

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) - This station was not shown on the 1894 map (but the RR is), so was likely built after that and was likely the second passenger station or moved there. 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. The railroad was known by various names over its lifetime or owned in full or part by: 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.
