The Peoria, Decatur & Evansville Railway

 Name:  CH&D Jct (Olney), Illinois (elevation 459')
 Mile Post:  IC 178.2, DOOR 84.5
 Previous Station:  Johnathan
 Next Station:  Olney
 Description:  Listed in a 1908 employee timetable, this would be the point where CH&D trains would leave/enter their own tracks in Olney to run/after having ran on the old G&M main line between here and West Liberty.  The reason they had to run over old G&M main line instead of their own was due to their main being removed by the PD&E after the latter had taken over the old DOOR line.  With the sale of that line in 1898, including the old DOOR trackage in Olney, trackage rights were needed to span the gap between West Liberty and here.
