Station Master's Office

Posted by
Eric Cousineau (Sherwood Park, Canada) on 10 September 2012 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

The station master was the person in charge of railway stations before the modern age. He would manage the other station employees and would have responsibility for safety and the efficient running of the station. Invariably, he would be provided with a substantial house and, in rural communities, would have significant social standing

I don't think of myself as a role model. I do try to live in a compassionate, considerate and positive way. The only advice I can offer is to find what you love to do, find the joy in it, and express yourself through your passion.
