Description 

Chicago & Alton/Gulf Mobile & Ohio railroad station on the line between Bloomington and Roodhouse. The Illinois Central Gulf abandoned this line sometime around 1980.

This station also served the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad on its branch between Beardstown and Flora, which crossed the C&A here. Service on the B&O was discontinued in the 1970s with abandonment following shortly.

Station structure was demolished sometime after 1970.
