inconsistency[edit]

The article mentions more stations than in the counts given on the page. 1852 1866 1872-3 (after the fire rebuilding...this station was gutted during the fire) 1902-3 current That's five stations, not 3. Changes made to make consistent. Icebox93 (talk) 22:22, 19 August 2012 (UTC)
