Southern Pacific

Freight Schedules

SP Condensed Freight Schedules early 1960s (my best guess) – this is a list that was compiled by author Dave Stanley.  It does not include T&NO or SSW trains except those that operate on Southern Pacific proper.  You can see a video interview with him here.
SP Through Manifest Merchandise Perishable Freight Schedule 24 10-15-1966
SP Freight Train Schedules 8-31-1972
SP Old and New Train Symbols 1-11-1974  A list of the original train names and new corresponding train symbols when SP converted to their alpha system.
SP Eugene Blocking Instructions 6-25-1975 Train schedules, bowl assignments, and blocking instructions for Eugene Yard
SP Condensed Perishable Merchandise Manifest 29 9-1-1977
SP System Blocking Book 3-31-1987  I don’t think this shows short distance manifest schedules, but it has blocking and schedules for intermodal and primary trains


SP Dallas and Austin 11 3-1-1938 – my token contribution to the massive collection at


SP Galena Park 6-1986
