|Blainesburg||The station was near the north end of Main Street (formerly Railroad Street) at approximately GPS: 40.035677, -79.881701. This station is shown on the 1921 Sanborn map of Brownsville.|
|Braddock||The station was at the intersection of Braddock Road and Sanitarium Road.|
|Bulger||This station was on Lincoln Street.|
|California||This was the original passenger station here, built in 1885. It was located at GPS: 40.068352, -79.889395. After the new station opened in 1910 it then served as the baggage pickup building.|
|Canonsburg||The original station was a Chartiers Valley RR station here that was built in 1870.|
|Chartiers Depot||According to the 1876 atlas, this station was just west of Tunnel #6 in eastern Buffalo Township.|
|Coal Centre||The passenger station was on the SE side of Spring Street on the north side of the tracks at GPS: 40.069877, -79.900200. The freight station was on the SE side of Strawberry Street at GPS: 40.069789, -79.899824.|
|Cook Station||This early Chartiers Valley station was in the vicinity of Oak Grove Road on the NW side of Washington.|
|Finleyville||This most likely predated the current station.|
|Hackney||This is not the building that currently sits on SR2007 near the old grade (which looks like it could have been a station but isn't). The station was torn down in 1940 and, prior to that, was used as a barn and storage shed by a private owner after the line ceased steam operations in 1933.|
|This station was near where Georgetown Road crosses the tracks in the SE part of Lawrenceville. A Chartiers Valley RR station is shown here on the 1876 map. In 1876 it was known as "Hills," but is shown on modern atlases as Hyland.|
|In 1876 the Chartiers Valley station here was on the east side of Main Street on the north side of the tracks.|
|Hunts Station||This was a station on the Chartiers Valley RR as shown on the 1876 map. This may be the same station as Houston as it was in that area but on the east side of the river.|
|Judge Chambers Station||A small waiting shelter was here.|
|This station in shown on the 1876 county atlas as Ewing Station.|
|Monongahela||This station was across the river in Allegheny County. It sat to the NE of the PA136 bridge (GPS: 40.201129,-79.915854).|
|This station was on Railroad Street. It was probably torn down in the 1960s.|
|Richfol||This station was between Morganza and Canonsburg.|
|Studa||This was the end of the 6.6 mile Langeloth Branch that came from Vanlear.|
|Summit||A small waiting shelter was here. This was between Judge Chambers Station and Braddock.|
|Taylorstown Station||Also known as Crother's Station, this depot sat across from the post office on a side road off SR3009.|
|Vaneman||This was a station on the Chartiers Valley RR. There is an old grade going south from here. This was the "Chartiers Southern" which started at Vaneman through Eighty Four, to Glyde (where a tunnel is) down to the PRR Marianna Branch. The B&O was supposed to have owned the Chartiers Southern from Eighty Four to Marianna, even though no physical connection existed in between the two railroads. The line was started South from Vaneman in 1908, but was abandoned in 1917 having never been completed.|
|Washington||The original B&O freighthouse here burned in 1887 and was replaced in 1888.|
|West Brownsville||In 1888 the passenger station was just west of Bridge Boulevard on the south side of the tracks (GPS: 40.023938, -79.890972). It appeared to be a part of a block of buildings rather than a traditional stand-alone station. This block of buildings included a grocery store and several dwellings. This station appears on several maps through 1901.|
|West Brownsville||On the 1907 map, a new station appears in approximately the same location as the one listed above. This station, however, is not attached to any other buildings.|
|Westland||The Westland Branch went from Houston to Westland via Brevard.|

|Notes About Existing
Avella (P&WV) - Restored by A.D. White Research Society. See restoration photos at their site.
Burgettstown (PRR) - Currently the station is being restored. When it is finished it will service as retail space for the Panhandle Trail, a restroom stop, and the head quarters for the BACDC. Updated pictures and an artist's rendition of the restoration can be seen at: www.burgettstowncommunity.org.
California (PRR) - On National Register of Historic Places. Caboose also on site. Became the library in 1958.
Washington (B&O) - The tracks don't see much action anymore besides an almost daily local which wanders down in the evening from Pittsburgh. In 1986, CSX ripped out around 15 miles of track between Wheeling, WV and Claysville, PA, severing the tracks which were once the farthest west in the USA. Station was designed by E F Baldwin. It cost $9,794. According to the B&O Annual Report of 1888, the station was built in that year.
Washington (W&W) - Used by Judson and Wiley for storage. It was built for the narrow gauge Waynesburg and Washington railroad back in the 1920's. After the Pennsylvania RR bought out the W&W, the tracks by the station were dual-gauged for a while. The station has beautiful stonework, but it is not in really good shape now. A supply and cement company uses the building for storage, and cement trucks drive down where the tracks were. The tracks were last used in the late 70's/early 80's when Conrail would deliver hoppers to the supply company.
West Brownsvile (PRR) - "Train Station Auto." Covered with aluminum siding. This may be the original freight station as the 1886 map shows the freight station at this same location.
