A&WP RR Atlanta beltline.

While visiting family in Atlanta recently, I had occassion to check out the old A&WP 'beltline' around the SE section of town. I was specifically trying to locate the old Lakewood Freight Station. (or its site) There is no sign of a station at the Lakewood Ave crossing....can anyone tell me where A&WP's Lakewood station is (was), and if now gone, when demolished?

Greg- Lakewood Station was at MP 4.35 on the A&WP belt line and it has been gone a LONG time. It had been closed for a number of years when I worked for the West Point in the early 1970's, and I'm not certain the building was standing even then. I do not know either the date of closure or the date of demolition.

Sorry I couldn't help more.
