Thanks to all who commented about the Bedford train order signal.
I have attached a scanned picture of Caroline H. Canada, agent at Lenning, from RAILROAD MAGAZINE, December 1943 issue, page 118. Does anyone remember her?
Station agents at small depots might receive or dispatch a pouch of mail from a Railway Post Office or from the baggage master if it was a "closed pouch" route. However, it was less common that that would place a pouch on a mail crane. Ordinarily, a postmaster arranged for a mail messenger to make trips between the post office and railroad dispatch location.
Good night and good morning,
