I grew up in the Britton, Oklahoma are. Although there are no official city limit signs anymore, there are signs around the area of Britton Road and Western, which I guess is about central Britton, that appear to be community signs at first glance. The biggest sign is just east of Western and at the intersection of Classen on the south side of Britton Road. Also, the intersection of Western and Britton is bisected from NE to SW by the BNSF railroad, with a siding starting just north of this intersection that heads north to Edmond and east of the main line that bisects the intersection. In this same area, there are the remnants of about 3 or 4 sidings that were west of the main line. The south side of these sidings were taken up in roughly 1990, as well as a storage building on the NE corner of Britton and Western, but there are about half of two of these sidings remaining for storage of rail cars that have some sort of defect (broken coupler, bad brakes, etc) that needs more than just a wrench, hose, and a few minutes of work to return it to service that connect to the main line about NW 96th street just east of Western. The area the storage building was in was across the tracks from the veterinary clinic at the intersection and appears to be a gravel lot to people driving by. This storage building was checker board painted white and either red that faded or an off color of orange and was shaped like the quarter-round on most base boards, with the rounded side facing NW. I am guessing, based off of memories of what I was told, that this was a goods storage for passenger service, then later for engineer goods and then rail repair service until it was "abandoned for use" by the railroads and removed, possibly for sake of not having to maintain a non used structure.Sean Hensley
