Santa Fe made few changes between yesterday’s 1958 timetable and this one. Train times changed for some minor trains, and a few mixed trains disappeared, but schedules the main trains remained about the same.
Most fares also remained the same, but for some reason round-trip coach fares rose by about 5 percent. For example, the one-way coach fare from Chicago to the West Coast was $61.12. In 1958, Santa Fe offered a round-trip discounted fare of $99.40, but in 1959 the discounted fare was $104.40. First-class and sleeping car fares, whether one-way or round-trip, remained the same.
