If you ever rode the train from the Thomson Depot, Miller Milford may have sold you a ticket.
Milford, 88, handled shipping and receiving at the old railway station for 18 years and was sometimes a ticket/travel agent.
The renovation to shore up the Depot and improve its interior and exterior facade makes Milford smile.
“I hated to see that building sit there and deteriorate,” he said. “It is good to know that they are finally changing it a bit,” he said of the work occurring in the area that used to house his office and what also was the old chamber of commerce.
“I am glad that they have kept it open. “I am so happy about this and I cannot wait to see what it looks like,” Milford said.
The former shipping clerk and ticket handler’s career with the railroad spanned 40 years.
