Tommy Henderson met the train to get the mail and would take it over to Wallace and Annie Donalds who had the post office in their home (Desmond & Hazel Gallants today) on the Western Road near Alma Corner.

the Alma sign used to be - most recently owned by James *Jim* MacNeill.
Wilbert said when he was young, in the mid-1940's, he and other local fellows use to go out to the station mostly on Saturday evenings (there wasn't much else to do) to hang out and wait for the train with Tommy and when he got the mail would go with him to the Donalds. The train came up from central PEI every evening, ending in Tignish, then leave the next morning to the middle of the Island again.
Wilbert couldn't recall who met the train after Tommy.
