Station

The former station is the brick house on the west side of the railroad, just south of where the track crosses Days Mill Road. This was originally built as a general store and hotel, and the Northern Central leased space there for a ticket office. Days Mill Road used to go up and over the railroad on a bridge, which was removed in the late 1970s. In the 1920s there was a terrible wreck at Brilhart Station when the lead truck on the K2s that was pulling a passenger train failed. (Ivan Frantz)
