From the SRHA Archives:

Southern Railway passenger traffic was down in 1915. Washington headquarters asked for almost continuous reports on Pullman passengers, usually to determine if lines should be discontinued. Although a comprehensive list of Pullman Line Numbers on the Southern has never been located in the Presidents’ or Mechanical Dept. files, the summaries sent to Washington give a good sense of how many different lines operated between various city pairs. In this example, trains out of Washington, DC.
