Blanton

C&O Milepost 103.5


[Menu]

Station Number: 104
Code Number: 0156

According to the 1937 Side Track Record, Blanton had a 420' loading track (track number 829). This track and a section laborer’s house were retired in 1938. The station was listed as abandoned in the C&O Index of Stations and Tunnels (1943, updated to 1969). Given its proximity to Wickham and the fact that there’s a Blanton building in Richmond, I suspect that the Blanton family was prominent in local politics and that the stop once served the plantation of the Blanton family.
