Increasing Amtrak use in Lawrence cited as good reason for city to buy depot

I really have my doubts that the train conductor bothered to "shoo" the homeless folks from the depot. First of all the conductor could care less and second that could be dangerous situation to place yourself in. The homeless don't always "shoo" easily.

Talk with some of the toll booth attendents it is a terrible place to work
