Just a guess here but is Cando shown on any N&W document that predates the construction of the parallel "C and O" Northern Subdivision? Could this have been a connection for construction equipment and material during the 1926-27 construction of that line? FWIW "CANDO" also shows up on C&O documents.

Between Ashville and Ritts on the N&W, there had been
tanks supplied from Big Walnut Creek. The tanks had
a storage capacity of 150,000 gals. Use of one of the
tanks was discontinued during the winter. Between
Jan. 1 and October 31, 1943, an average of 0.4
trains/day stopped to take on 7,000 gals. This water
station was apparently known as Reeses.

Very interesting. There was station named Cando in 1929 just north of Circleville. I have been unable to locate any miles for this point. Could this be the old name for Ritz?

A 1909 N&W PTT showed Reeses as 4 miles from Lockbourne and 2 miles to Valley Xing. Below is a list of these stations.
