    Canadian Pacific posted this image on their Instagram page and I thought I'd share it.

    Caption reads: "In a scene that played out hundreds of times a day across the system, CPR station agent R. Lefebvre copies train orders at Hudson, Quebec in 1950. Station agents played a vital role during the days before centralized dispatching, relaying critical instructions to train crews to ensure safe and efficient operations."
