Hmmmmm. Unquestioned. Portsmouth, Ohio.

No station was ever enlarged in such a manner. The ex-Scioto Valley
station/N&W at 16th and Chillicothe was not enlarged as such nor was the ex-
CP&V station at 10th and Waller every changed to a two-story. Not until
the large depot was built by US23 overpass were all of the division offices
placed within a station.

Portsmouth People Hear Good News From Norfolk and Western

From an unquestioned source it is learned that the Norfolk and Western
Railway Company is planning to make extensive additions and improvements to
the passenger station at Portsmouth early in the coming year, says the Times
of that city.

The plan is to enlarge the depot and add one and possible two more
stories to the depot. Then the intention is to move the offices of Supt. J.
T. Carey, and the dispatchers' offices will be moved from the terminals to
the new depot, occupying the upper stories. The present quarters at the
terminals will be used by the yard and shop officials.

This is a move that will meet with hearty approval in all quarters and
the company is to be congratulated on deciding to make the improvements.
