A person could not get on the car without going down from the depot platform and then stepping up into the car.  This a solitary young lady passenger refused to do.  The conductor did not propse to back up his train just fo the lady to step into the car when she could so easily get on by stepping down on teh ground and then getting on the car steps, so after yelling "all aboard" a couple of times he gave the "all right" signal and the train pulled out.  The young lady's home is in Ishpeming, and she had to walk home that night. . . .  DSS and A Passenger
