Crowd control If you like helping direct visitors to where they need to be....join us at the Snoqualmie Depot or at North Bend Depot. You will be directing visitors to the boarding line and make sure they have their tickets ready to show the conductor, help answer any other questions (like where the restrooms are), and help keep people away from/off of the tracks when the train rolls in!
