Key:
STATIONS FROM EMPLOYEE TIMETABLES ARE IN CAPITALS
LVRR LOCATIONS FROM TRAFFIC TRACK DIAGRAMS ARE IN ITALIC CAPITALS
A = freight agent, N = no agent, MFA = metropolitan (?) freight agent, PTA = part-time agent
Customer locations from traffic track diagrams are in lower case
Locations listed in earlier Employee Timetables, but deleted in 1975 Employee Timetable No. 10, are shown in gray. If anyone can provide exact dates of abandonment, I will include them.
Stations from the Employee Timetables whose location relative to industries or LVRR installations in the Traffic Track Diagrams are not clear are shown in blue. Also, a few mileages given in the ETT do not agree with the order in which the stations are listed, and these mileages are shown in red. I welcome any information which will help to clear up these discrepancies.
