Historic passenger Station at Tunnelton WV

Old B&O Station; The Tunnelton Historical Society bought the brick depot with a terra cotta tile roof, now nearing 90 years old, from CSX for $10,000 in

Tunnelton's depot is the only brick train station left in Preston County since Terra Alta's was demolished. Some of the original glass remains in the large windows, and looking through, the well-preserved
woodwork, ticket counter and ceramic tile floor hint at the bustle that once filled the building.

People used to put on their best clothes to come to the train station Sunday afternoon to see passengers board and depart. A hotel stood across the street from the station then, and the town was rich with profits of coal and railroad.
