What Santa Fe called its Passenger Edition had many of these same things but in an abbreviated format that filled the equivalent of 18 pages (36 half-pages). The Passenger Edition put the schedule for just one major train on each page: one for the Super Chief, one for the El Capitan, and so forth, whereas table 1 of the Ticket Agent Edition listed all seven trains leaving Chicago–the Super Chief, El Capitan, Texas Chief, San Francisco Chief, Kansas City Chief, Chief, and Grand Canyon–in one easy-to-compare table.
