Here's a very well made video by jitensya37 about the history of the area around Shiojiri Station.  Thanks to some clear maps and years written in the western system, this video is understandable and enjoyable.


Shiojiri Station's history starts in 1902 under JGR, at this point specifically the Ministry of Railways.  The video shows various line alterations over the years including the relocation of the station building in 1982 as well as a walk around the neighborhood.  It became JR East territory in 1987 and is also the administrative border with JR Central's portion of the Chuo Line running southwest to Nagoya.

The excellent Senro Haisenzu blog also has several entries for Shiojiri.  Included are track diagrams and old photos:
