of a train station!! What do they do? That must be an easy job. It is
if you do it according to the Job description. All you have to do
is unlock the station and go home. Then come back after the train.
Clean the station, lock it up and go home again. The problem is this.
Every station is different. They each have their own personality if you
will. This is a part of what make train travel fun and unique. LaPlata
has an odd distinction of the caretaker being on duty for each train
that arrives. This was something started long before I moved to LaPlata
6 years ago. So when the opportunity came to take care of the station.
I kept up with the tradition of manning an "unmanned" station.
Looks peaceful doesn't it?
The hours of this particular station is 9am to 11am and 7pm to 9pm M-F 365 days a year.
