1916:  The Michigan Railroad Commission reports that the DBC&W crosses the PO&N at Wolmot. There is no protection at this crossing. All trains on both roads come to a stop before passing as required by law. Also, the DBC&W maintains a station agent at this station. Three passenger trains run each way, daily except Sundays.
