Many Thanks! Mighty nice! Bear in mind your writer with a wired in bias. That being, near to two years service with SRS at  
Fort Brosnan Offices on K Street, NW, Washington. They were there to fight endless wars with the FEDS. S R S did prevail  
on much litigation. That is why the line paid for lawyers!
 
BTW. At the time in SRS HQ, the "company culture" such they always denied ever seeing a memo of cessation of hostilities  
at Appomatox, ending "Lincoln's War Of Northern Aggression". One was wise to think of it that way. Company felt hurt about  
unpaid war claims, among other issues...
 
The Map, instant and above. On the left side, it does not have the part depicting services to/ from Memphis and St. Louis.  
Historical fact. Otherwise, long ago spotting note. As noted in the Map, there were eight separate companies in the SYSTEM.  
With its passenger equipment, displayed SOUTHERN in a large font, middle of letterboard. On an upper location near a door,  
there was a smaller font display of initials of which legal entity owned (or leased) the particular piece of rolling stock. (Check  
the Photos of the era.)

Sorry about that Vern. The 2 lines that run off the scan of the map to the west are those. The northern one is St. Louis and the southern one is Memphis. The schedule is longer then my scanner and as a result some of the information got cut off.

TKS! No problem. Suspect the "old timers" with S R S orientation recall the thru schedules which came down the line via  
Orange, VA - N&W via  Roanoke - Bristol - Chattanooga - Memphis. Meanwhile, and AFAIK, there had been no schedules  
on the St. Louis "line" for a number of years before the instant T/T Folder shown.
 
BTW. As for the ID initials on the Cars. IIRC, "SOU" indicated SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY. Also, the T/T indicates  
eight lines all part of SYSTEM. It does not list other lines which did not have Passenger Services of the time of Folder Map.  
Examples: LOP&G (Live Oak, Perry And Gulf). And, INTERSTATE, a smaller, largely coal hauler in (IIRC) Eastern KY and  
SW VA...
 
BTW (2). The St. Louis line service? With this, probably best to check a 1938 System Folder ("Yellow Kit" in SRS lingui).  
Service likely between Lexington, KY and St Louis. SRS did have at least one ACF "Motor Car" streamliner, which dated  
to WWII Era. From SRS Folders, it is not clear where the unit assigned...
