Whereas the railway companies subject to the jurisdiction of the Board are required from time to time to appoint caretaker agents at stations at which regular station agents are not maintained,—

The Board therefore declares: That the duties of a caretaker shall be as follows, namely: To see that the station is kept clean and, when necessary, heated and lighted for the accommodation of passengers, and to be present on the arrival and departure of trains; such duties to be the same as those of a regular station agent, excepting the billing of freight and handling the telegraph system.
