One took the ferry; the other, the west bound train at Gretna.
I went as far as the railroad, and saw the West Bound pass; it was two hours late.
Rod was already enough of a railroad man to know that, as he was going east, he must walk on the west bound track.
To settle the question he kneeled down, and placed his ear against one of rails of the west bound track.
The west bound train passed my station at eight in the morning, and the east bound at seven-thirty in the evening.
The railway does not discriminate against shipments because they are east bound or west bound.
And the time on that first trip was ten days for both east and west bound pouches.
