JOY IN WELLSVILLE

Erie Railroad Company is to Erect a Fine New Red Brick Passenger Station in That Lively Village This Fall.


Erie officials have given it out at Wellsville that a new passenger station, 30x150 is to be erected in that village, the work to begin within a few weeks. There will be a long covered train shed with the main entrance on Pearl Street. The present freight station will not be changed. The material used will be red pressed brick, terra cotta tiling and the Interior finish will be oak. In many ways the station will resemble the pretty structure erected by the Erie at Olean a few years ago. Wellsville is the only town in Allegany county at which the Erie fast trains stop regularly and the Erie enjoys a large business there. The people of Wellsville are delighted over the prospect of a modern station.
