Description: 

The main depot for the railroad that John Sartoris builds is located on the edge of Jefferson. This is where the first train in Yoknapatawpha history arrives, with Sartoris himself driving and "blowing blast after blast" on the whistle (225-26). There is also a "flag station" - i.e. a spot where a train will stop to pick up a passenger, if flagged to do so - near the Sartoris mansion; this is the location from which Drusilla leaves Yoknapatawpha at the end of the novel (252).
