Using the language of Altmann, Hausen and Su, we describe invariant divisors on normal varieties X which admit an effective codimension one torus action. In this picture, X is given by a divisorial fan on a smooth projective curve Y. Cartier divisors on X can be described by piecewise affine functions h on the divisorial fan S whereas Weil divisors correspond to certain zero and one-dimensional faces of it. Furthermore, we provide descriptions of the divisor class group and the canonical divisor. Global sections of line bundles O(D (h) ) will be determined by a subset of a weight polytope associated to h, and global sections of specific line bundles on the underlying curve Y.
