Thanks for posting the photos. It brings back many fond memories of departing and arriving from that Station when I lived in Gainesville in the 1970s.The Waldo Fl Amtrak Station still exists - though it hasn't been open in years ... overall, the building still looks to be in OK shape, though it is NOT ADA compliant.
The station used to be full service with checked baggage and a ticket counter.
Back in the 1960's and moving into the 1970's a friend of mine's father was the Station Master. The station was not open full-time - but opened for service an hour or two before the train was scheduled and stayed open for 30 minutes after the train left.
