locked Re: Via Sleeping Car NYC to San Francisco via Atlanta-Montgomery-New Orleans!

Now that is interesting that they can put the car on whatever train they want. Seems like it would need to keep a schedule. Would you get a ticket to arrive on a specific date and not time?
Also, what route from N.O. I wonder? SP to LA then north or dropped somewhere earlier and moved north before LA.

The attached letter from the L&N to Southern dated Nov 2, 1914 discusses the handling of a tourist sleeping car to San Francisco. Research in “Guides” and PTTs could confirm the route. Assuming it went through Washington to NYC, could this the longest Pullman line in the US?
