Aulon Station

Abandoned NC&STL Railway
Route Between Memphis, Jackson & Bruceton

Aulon Station - Milepost ONI 224.1 (Page 1)

This view from the early 1950's shows NC&STL's City of Memphis GP-7 #754
eastbound at Aulon Junction approaching the Poplar Avenue grade crossing.
(this was before Poplar was elevated above all the railroad tracks here.)
When NC&STL converted the City of Memphis from steam to diesel power EMD
GP7s were assigned. Contributed by Bill Folsom & David Johnston.

I believe this picture was around 8:00 am while NC&STL's 1st class passenger train
no. 105 going east.

Seaboard System MP15T #1216 westbound with the "Cordova Local" rolls past Aulon
Tower April 15, 1987 after making a run out to Cordova and back.
Photo & contributed by David Johnston.

Removed switch at the beginning of the Cordova Branch to the
right looking east. The left goes to CNIC double tracks then
CSXT Leewood Yard.

The former NC&StL track under the Poplar Avenue overpass
looking east.

Old Aulon Tower siding looking south.

Powering red light signal is standing beside the former NC&StL tracks no longer cross the main line of the CNIC/CSXT at Aulon Tower.
What a bizarre signal. Both views are looking west.
