I attended St. James in the 70's. At that point in time the old station was no longer in operation and had been moved about a half a block from it's original location. Student's would walk the tracks to Bloom's Store, which you will recall was the local post office, general store, and source of candy, ice cream and RC Cola. I wonder if she didn't end up working for Mr. Bloom when the station closed.

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.
