WINTON PLACE DEPOT
Winton Pl. Depot-c1865 Depot around 1918 CH&D Depot-1917
The 1st photograph above shows the original 1865 depot, which was called Chester Park at the beginning. Named for the Horse Tract across the street, that later became the Chester Park amusement park. This can seen in the 2nd & 3rd non-postcard images above. The CH&D station was located near Spring Grove Cemetery.
The first postcard was taken in 1948, the second is a 1967 postcard showing a PRR train arriving at the depot. The 3rd card show the depot in 1965. The last three show the depot after it was moved to Sharon Woods. The last image is not a postcard.
These rare cards shows the railroad depot and community of Cozaddale, Ohio which is located to the East of Loveland, Ohio. This is stretching the boundaries of my collecting interests but I felt I had to show these real photo postcards. The 2nd card was mailed from Cozaddale in 1914. I am not sure what it shows.
Norwood Park Station in 1887 B&O East Norwood-1949 Norwood B&O depot-1918

The first image above is the Norwood Park Depot that was located at the corner of Smith Road and Lafayette Ave. 100 yards north of this passenger station was a freight station at Smith Road and Sherman Ave. The middle image shows the depot built in 1873 on Forest Ave. south of Harris Ave. The last image shows the first B. & O. Depot in Norwood and was located at Foraker and Station Avenues.
not a postcard
Glendale C. H. & D. Depot
The original Glendale Station burned in 1879 and the present depot was constructed in 1880 on the same site at Greenville Ave. and Village Square. In the early days there was a hand-operated turntable situated nearby for Glendale was, at that time, the terminal point of the C. H. & D.'s commuter service. Each engine had to be laboriously turned around by the engineer and crew for the return trip to Cincinnati.
B & O RR At Camargo Pike B & O Wreck - 7/29/10
The Madisonville Depot, built in 1888, was located at the corner of Peabody Street and Orlando Place. The station continued in operation until the mid-1940s and was razed later in that decade. The B&O overpass seen in the last card above going over Central Ave. was constructed ca. 1905. The train wreck was caused when a switch engine that was pushing a freight car into the street and had stopped in front of W.H. Settle & Co. building and was struck by another freight engine.
St. Bernard Depot St. Bernard-1918 Fernbank Depot
not a postcard
The Fernbank Depot was located on River Road at Catalpa Road.
Big 4 Wreck Lockland May 15, 1931
Railroad depot North Bend Station
Mount St. Joseph
The Mount St. Joseph depot was completely under water during the 1937 flood. The information on the North Bend card may be inaccurate as there is strong evidence that it was actually located on Brower Road on the west side of the tracks.
Big Four Depot and Rail Road tracks Cleves, Ohio
The Cleves Depot was on the south side of West State Road (US 50) a block west of South Miami Ave. The station in Cleves today is on the original site but has been completely redesigned and rebuilt.
Miami Depot (Miamitown)
Miamitown got its original name - Miami - from the West Miami tribe of Shawnee Indians who had hunted in the region in the 1700s. Arthur Henrie a nephew of Revolutionary War hero Patrick Henry, laid out the town over what had been an orchard. He sold the first lot to Jacob Herrider in 1816. On July 4, 1817, William Henry Harrison chose Miami to make a major pronouncement against slavery. Sometime between 1904 when the Miami post office closed and when it reopened in November of 1931 the name was changed to Miamitown. The depot began service in 1907 for the CC&L. C&O bought it in 1910. It closed many years ago.
Not a Postcard
A visitor to this page who has lived in this area for 60 years has informed me that this card is in error. He states that this depot is actually the old NYC station in Cleves near Addyston. The person who took this image had gone all over the country taking pictures of old train stations (you can find other examples on this site) and did not actually live in this area so I am inclined to believe a lifelong resident over the publisher of the card.
Replica of original Silverton
Station. On Montgomery Rd.
The original station was on Montgomery between Highland Ave. & Parkview Lane. It was on the NW side of the tracks, the replica is on the SE side.
Sharonville Big 4 Depot

Terrace Park RR Bridge?
Delhi during 1913 flood Delhi NYC Depot-1966
The 1st non postcard image above shows the NYC depot on the left and the B&O on the right. The 2nd, postcard, image seems to show that the NYC depot took over the B&O Depot.
Wyoming Depot far left
The RPPC above states that the building was called the Woodruff Building in which the writer states he had just gone to a Masonic meeting. The building on the left is claimed to be the Wyoming Depot (by someone other than the sender of the card. It is hard to compare with the far right image directly below. The last two are not postcards. The depot was on Poplar Ave. just east of Crescent St.
Batavia N & W Depot
Batavia is not in my collecting area but it was too nice not to show you.

B&O Cumminsville Sta. B&O E. Cumminsville Ivorydale Sta. P&G behind Ivorydale in 1971

It appears the station agent lived in the back of the East Cumminsville Depot. The depot was located at the south end of Langland Ave. on the north side of the tracks.
The B&O Warehouse at Second & Smith Sts. (700 Pete Rose Way).
The map shows the location of the B&O Warehouse (in green) seen in the next four photographs. The building, built in 1903-04, has been shortened and is now known as Longworth Hall. (The land originally was owned by Nicholas Longworth). It was a five story brick and steel structure with 12' ceilings and contained 219,00 square feet of space. It had 12 elevators of 8,000lb capacity with automatic fire alarms and a sprinkler system. The siding could hold 12 cars. This building was the inbound freight warehouse with the one-story building next to it being the outbound freight warehouse. On the other side of the smaller building was the Mill Street engine terminal containing a roundhouse, power plant, and coal tipple. This building, nearly a quarter mile in length, was reported to be the largest such structure in the world when built. The B&O also used five other storage warehouses in the area plus three cold storage facilities. It is now thriving with about 80 small businesses that require, or want, open loft-style offices. This building was added to the National Register of Historic Places on December 29, 1986.

The Oakley Depot seen above was built in 1903 to replace the original depot that had burned down. Located on Enyart Avenue near Madison Road It closed in 1971.
Riverfront elevated railroad
I have no idea where along the Ohio River this Kraemer card "Close Call" happened, but since it did not cost me very much, I decided to get it. It is a nice card.
C.& O. Railroad
This card is obviously portrayed as passing Cincinnati from the Kentucky side of the Ohio.
