Old passenger train timetables

I started collecting everything that had to do with

railroads back in 1966 as that seems to be where

most of my collection begins. I wrote a letter to the

AAR asking for anything like train schedules maps

and shit back in 1966. They responded with the

greatest package of shit I ever recieved. Probly the

best thing was an Official Guide of the Railways

May 1965 issue. So anyway in 1966 all the freight

roads were still doing passenger trains too. Remember

the GN/BN using the SDP-40's on the Seattle-Vancouver BC

run until BN bowed out of the passenger train business

except around Chicago. So in 1966 it seems every railroad

that was in the passenger train business re-issued a new

timetable/schedule in 1966 and I'm not sure why I got so

many of them. I notice some have a travel agency stamp

from Bham on them. Probly walked in there one day and took

one of everything they had.
