Here is a collection of timetable covers. Timetables are interesting historical documents, and as time goes on we'll post examples of their content. They provide a fascinating window on how railroads present themselves to the public as well as the last years of US and Canadian private railroading, Amtrak throughout much of its history, and the privatization of the British railway system. Look at some of those from the late 1960s, such as the Southern Pacific 1969, and Penn Central East-West 1970, and you can see, well before Amtrak's arrival in 1971, that, as dull or cheap timetables show, once great passenger carriers were giving up the ghost. You can also see a couple of US railroads, the Southern and Rio Grande, that tried to keep service alive post Amtrak.  Check back often because we'll be adding more timetables as our file boxes empty and travels continue.
