The cover of this timetable is the same as that of the October, 1960 edition shown here a few days ago. Shockingly, the biggest change in the timetable is the addition of a full hour to the time of the westbound North Coast Limited. Where in 1960 the train left Chicago at 12:10 pm and arrived in Seattle at 7:30 am two days later, in 1962 the Seattle arrival was delayed to 8:30 am. Much of this seems to be “pad” added to allow late trains to “catch up” before reaching the main destinations.
The eastbound North Coast Limited timetable isn’t changed at all. Both east- and westbound Mainstreeters have a few minutes added to their schedules: 5 minutes westbound and 10 minutes eastbound. But neither of these additions is as dramatic as the full-hour added to the North Coast Limited.
