On the 1901 Sanborn map a building is shown at this location and on the 1906 map it is labeled "H&BT Station."

This station was actually in Aitch (formerly known as Grantsville) which is now gone due to the flooding of the valley for Raystown Lake. The station also served as the post office. The town was renamed Aitch to avoid confusion with the railroad station in Grantsville, MD.  The name of Aitch was formed from the last names of prominent families in the town.

The borough approached the railroad and asked them to demolish the building. The Friends of the EBT documented the building in detail, and both the FEBT & EBT saved examples of siding, sashes, doors and windows in case the station can be rebuilt in the future.
Shade Gap Built in 1885, the station met its demise when it was burned in a fire department training exercise. The original station location was due north of the intersection of Taylor Road and Shade Valley Road in what is now just an empty field. The upper picture is the station as it looked after being sold & moved to a new site. The bottom picture is looking NW at the original site. The station sits on the left side of the tracks behind a tree, the water tank would be just beyond it. The covered structure to the right of the main is a spur serving a small coal trestle for local deliveries. The track behind the photographer would continue SE to Neelyton.

Notes About Existing Stations...

Broad Top City (H&BTM) - Moved from Broad Top City to nearby Dudley.

Mount Union (PRR Freight) - This building has been through a number of different configurations. The two-story part of this building was adeed to the freight house that was built here sometime before 1894. In the early 1900 the freight station was extended and then sometime between 1911-1919 this two story section was added on. Then, sometime after it went out of service, the original part of the freight house was torn down leaving only the two story addition. The one-story extension is a replica of the original frieght house and was added on when the station was restored. 

Pogue (EBT) - This was a farmhouse and general store that also served as a flag stop for the railroad.

Rockhill Furnace (EBT) - Located in Rockhill Furnace but called Orbisonia Station to avoid confusion with other stations named "Rockhill" in Pennsylvania.

Rockhill Furnace (EBT) - May have been the original passenger station prior to 1906.
