Hi Soaring, there are a few. Thereís one that was moved and is now a private home located almost across from the Edge of Woods mobile home park. Thereís a sign on it, I think itís the Glendale one. The Ames Farm one is now on the right side going toward Alton, though not identified by a sign, as itís an Ames Farm Inn cottage now. The Spring Haven one is just after the Owl store. I think the Lake Shore Park one is still there, but not positive. Iím not sure about the Belknap Point one. Thereís an older thread devoted to the Lake Shore railroad with a ton of information and pictures.

The Alton Loon Cove station was relocated to the B&M Railroad Park near the Alton police station. It was restored using original construction drawings.

Lake Shore Park's is still there and being used as a Motel for guests of members, and the Train Depot is still there being used as a store and function hall. I'm sure i have pics of the Depot, but I'll have to take pics of the Motel next time I'm up there.
LSP just got rid of the last B&M railroad water tower a few years ago and is now at a train museum in NH.

Default Lily Pond Station

Lily Pond station was moved up on Old Lake Shore Road across from Gilford Hills tennis center. It is a private residence, but the building retained the depot feel.

Default Glendale

There is a landing made of cut granite just yards east of the Lincoln Cottage on Belknap Point. The house at that site used to be a small RR station. Remodeling many tines makes it no longer look much like traditional RR architecture. The pier looks similar in construction to the pier at LSP. The lore of Kimball's Castle is that Kimball took the train to his business offices in Concord.
