I am doing a points run to Jackson. Arriving on southbound CONO, leaving that evening. Any thoughts on things to see near the station. Does anyone know if the station is a comfortable place to wait?

It's a nice station.  The biggest attraction in the station district is the King Edward hotel.  The last time I was in Jackson the downtown appeared to be slowly building up.  I can't tell you if it has finally emerged as a vibrant area, but I know that's the goal.
