PIEDMONT AND WESTERN RAILROAD CLUB

PRESENTS

The North Carolina Railroad Station Photo Page

This section of the P&WRR webpage began using the photos of one of our club members, Gene Austin, who had been taking photographs of various railroad stations here in North Carolina. Many of the photos originally shown here, and some which remain, were taken by him years ago when he was just getting interested into railroad photography and railfanning. Understandably, the quality of some of these older photos is not high.

Mr. John D Jones of Laurens, SC has contributed many North Carolina photos for this site. Mr. Jones has been travelling around the Carolinas for many years hunting out present and former stations and photographing them. He has contributed several hundred excellent photos of depots and other railroad structures for this site. Because of the higher quality of digital photography, in some cases, Mr. Jones' photos have replaced those which originally appeared on this site.

More recently, Brian Ezzelle, Arthur Peterson, Matt Bumgarner, Lynn McConnell and John T. Willams, Jr. contributed many historic photographs of North Carolina stations and structures, some dating back as much as 100 years or more. Many of these photos depict stations which no longer exist.

We also thank Rev. S. David Carriker for providing his extensive collection of historic depot photographs and Lynn McConnell whose research into the history of North Carolina depots has been an invaluable asset in aiding us to properly identify a number of the photographs on these pages.

This site shows the various and many different station styles throughout North Carolina plus a number of other railroad structures throughout the State. A great many of the stations are now abandoned or have been converted to other uses. Some have been demolished since the photos were taken.

We thank Alan Ashworth, Craig Augenstein, Gene Austin, Wally Brown, Wiley M. Bryan, Matt Bumgarner, David Burnette, Dale Burns, Tom Byrne, Warren Calloway, Alan Coleman, Ken Curtis, Mike Edge, Paul Folmsbee, J. Eric Furr, Julie Hampton Ganis, Lynn George, John F. Gilbert, Emma Goodwin, Norman D. Graham, Scott Hedspeth, Ken Humphreys, Tom King, Mike Lawing, J. Parker Lamb, Joe Mack, Kenny Mann, Jay Miller, Janet Morrison, Deena Payne, Nick Pino, Nancy Poovey, Victor Pope, Robert Richardson, Jesse Riggs, Tom Rock, Robert Rousseau, David Serxner, Richard Shulby, Pete Silcox, Tim Skidmore, Kerry Smith, Bob Stahr, Wayne Stainback, Joe Steed, Noah Steele, Annette Tarlton, Mike Taylor, Mark Thomas, J. M. Turner, Gary Tuttle, Doug Walker, Ed Weber, Ed Webster, John Williams, B. Zimmerman and Craig Zuni for additional images used here. Other photos have been obtained from various sources including the Stanly News & Press, Anson County Historical Society, Badin Museum, Caldwell Heritage Museum in Lenoir, Canon Library in Kannapolis, Harrisburg Historical Society, Mt. Airy Museum of Regional History, Norwood Museum, Oakboro Regional Museum, Stanly, the North Carolina Archives and History Collection and the Wake Forest University Archives Collection. The Charlotte Observer and the Norfolk Southern Corporation have also provided a number of photographs for this site as is noted were they appear.

Please note that all of the images are held in copyright by the owners as noted - usually on the image itself. The photographs which have been provided by the Charlotte Observer and the Norfolk Southern Corporation may not be downloaded or reproduced without the expressed permission of the Charlotte Observer and Norfolk Southern.

A excellent website for information on railroad stations anywhere in the United States is that of the Railroad Station Historical Society, Inc., http://rrshs.org/. Check it out!

If you find the quality of any image poor, just remember how often you have said "Gee, if only I had taken a picture of that when I was 15 years old".
