Thanks for the query.

Maybe the man takes two southbound trains on two successive days to reach his destinations and then returns back to the first station on a northbound train on the third day.

While I trudge North, you rest South
I flash toothy grin, but with no mouth
You bark and weep, as I sing and dance
And count the years that have gone past
What am I? What are you?
