In the mid 50's while attending St. James School about 6 miles south of
Hagerstown on the N&W, I would often visit the St. James station.  I recall the
station agent as being a friendly lady, possibly around 30 years old.  I have no
recollection of her name, but from what I've read here there were very few
female station agents on N&W.   It sure sounds as if this was Ms. McNeil.  

Though I don't remember the lady's name, one lasting memory of that era is
a short cab ride in a K-2.  Talk about cloud nine!

There was an interesting article about Luetta McNeil, a  station agent,
posted here on March 9, 2013. The article said she briefly  served on the
northern end of the Shenandoah line. Does anybody know which  station she worked

in the north ? Is she still living ? She would be near  90 years old but
quite possibly still with us.
