Bedford to demolish historic railroad station

The City of Bedford has decided to demolish one of two historic railroad stations, as it has been too much altered to be worth trying to save, despite it having hosted Abraham Lincoln's visit in 1861. (Thomas Ott. "Aged depot not worth cost to restore, Bedford to hear." Plain Dealer. Friday, April 28, 2006. Page B-5.) Note: A railroad history fan had some problem finding this station, as the route taken by the old Cleveland & Pittsburgh is somewhat at variance from today's trackage.
