London to Lilly Chapel


Map submitted by Mike Fromholt.

GOOGLE MAPS no longer available: With apologies, I am unable to continue showing Google Maps. Google has forced my hand by increasing their map usage fee from nothing/free to OVER $300 A MONTH for the Abandoned Rails website! This is an expense that I simply cannot afford. Rest assured I am looking at available open source alternatives, so maps should be back online soon!

This route is now part of Camp Chase Rail Trail.

This line was abandoned sometime in the early 70's (I think...). After the Penn Central merger the railroad decided to use the Pennsy main from Columbus to London and then the NYC main from London to Springfield as their primariy route. These crossed at-grade by the depot. Both lines were operated west of London until the Pennsy line to Xenia was abandoned in 1988. Lilly Chapel was (and may still be served) by the Camp Chase Railroad from Columbus.
