Cleaning and painting activities are well underway. This is the waiting room, looking south, with the ticket window to the right, and the front door through and to the left.
The effects of time, and perhaps a once-leaking roof, have taken their toll on the floor and wall modling. On the positive side, the woodwork is still there to be restored. This room is in the northwest corner of the building, and perhaps was a sitting room leading into the ladie's restroom.
