Trains number 42 and 53 as they appear in a Winter November 29, 1942 Timetable. Train 42 Ran from Los Angeles out to San Bernadino.. then Returned from San Bernadino on a second line thus enabling the connection aboard a single set of equipment.
Many thanks for passing on the data from the 1942 timetable for us...Someone must've wanted to go from San Bernardino to L.A. via Anaheim the long way, very badly! (LOL) I wonder why the AT&SF RR
ran a train via that route, through Anaheim, anyway? Well, it's history now, and thanks to the Jack Benny Shows, well remembered...I wonder if a writer or other member of Jack's staff took that train route once, or was familiar with the towns along this particular Santa Fe route?
That's very interesting.
