I met Celeste who is the conductor on the Amtrak Crescent, when we stopped in Birmingham, Alabama. She’s a helpful and gracious woman who obviously loves what she’s doing. As we talked about her work, it became evident she throughly enjoys working on the rails. I enjoyed watching smile constantly while helping several elderly passengers and mothers and their small children board the train in Birmingham, Alabama.
