C&O Milepost 89.5
Station Number: 89
Code Number: 0133
Strawberry Hill was listed as a station in both the 1923 passenger schedules and the 1934 List of Officers, Agents, Stations, Etc.. It was not, however, on the 1948 edition of the same document nor the 1937 passenger timetables. It was listed as abandoned in the C&O Index of Stations and Tunnels (1943, updated to 1969). The Virginia State Fairground is located at Strawberry Hill and I don't believe it was ever more than a flag stop for C&O trains. According to the Swank book (see References), the line at Strawberry Hill is on a steep grade.
This map was prepared from U.S.G.S. topological maps, C&O track charts dated 1963, C&O Side Track Records dated 1937, a copy of the Side Track Records updated through the 1990’s, and C&O Valuation maps, also updated through the 1990’s.
