Built in 1895 by Toledo & Ohio Central with one of the strangest station towers ever built. T&OC was taken over by New York Central who closed this station to passengers in 1930 moving all passenger trains to Columbus Union Station. This beautifully restored building is now used by the Columbus, Ohio Firefighters Union. (Ron Reiring, CC BY 2.0 <https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0>, via Wikimedia Commons)



The Toledo and Ohio Central Railway (T&OC) was a railway company in the U.S. state of Ohio from 1885 to 1952. In 1928 it was leased by the New York Central System, which purchased the line in 1938.
