Agent and conductor on moving westbound freight exchanging waybills and "railroad mail". This could be a tricky maneuver especially for the inexperienced employee. (I got yelled at a few times). If the conductor missed his pick on the waybills , he had to stop train and walk back to meet up with the "stupid f..king" agent or clerk.
