Portland-Seattle 1966 Timetable

By 1966, this timetable had shrunk from the equivalent of six pages in the 1962 edition to just four pages. All of the trains still operated; the difference was fewer connecting bus schedules and the equipment of trains was tucked in under each timetable instead of being given its own panel.

The timetable also had room for an ad encouraging “family travel fun” to Seattle and Portland, illustrated by the Space Needle for Seattle and elephants and the zoo train for Portland. Portland was famous for being the home of Packy, the first elephant born in the western hemisphere in 44 years. Strangely, though Packy’s birth and the Seattle World’s Fair both took place in 1962, neither were mentioned in that timetable.
