Long Description:
While nicely painted with a newer asphalt shingle roof, the Hiltons depot does not appear to be in formal use. The grounds were being mowed. The rails have been removed, although a crossing sign remains nearby. Past discussion was held about making the path a rails-to-trails conversion.

11/5/09 update: Per American-Rails.com link Duffield: The passenger station originally built by the Southern Railway here still stands, moved to Hilton. so this depot might have been in Duffield. The current "depot" in Duffield was a movie prop.
