Conductor's room

While labeled on the original drawings for the Kelso Depot as a Conductor's room there was in fact little need for a conductor's room or a waiting room at the Kelso train station due to the extremely low volume of passenger traffic. Over the years the room did see occasional use as a waiting room, but in the balance it was more of an anteroom to the ticket and telegraph office to which it was linked by the ticket window. Because the telephone was accessible from this room, the conductors' room also saw use as a sort of telephone space, used by Kelso residents during emergencies or by crews working in the area prior to the installation of a public phone at Kelso. During the hectic World War II years the conductor's room was temporarily set up as an office for a Union Pacific employee who took inventory of the trains coming through Kelso.
