Meeting The Trains
During the thriving days of Oakford the depot was one of the popular loafing
places in town. During these years there was an operator working twenty-four
hours a day with as many as twenty-four trains passing through Oakford a day.
It became a habit for many people to meet every passenger train whether they
expected anyone or not. The above group are standing from left to right: George
Harding, Elza Thomas, Hugh Watkins, Otis Lee, Scott Thomas, John Allen, John
McHenry, E.G.Holland, Wood Watkins, Luther Lynn, Alex Sinclair, Jack Dowell,
and John Lesslighter. Sitting from left to right are: Ryal Armstrong.
Willie Emmerson, Erbie Thomas, Dave Lee, Bob Meyer, Heinie Meyer, Pete Ogden
and Traveling Man.
