Ike, et al -
The Pullman Company's Schedule of Lines dated July 15, 1915, shows a Washington-San Francisco tourist sleeper, line No. 2640 1/2(!) but it was not handled in No. 38, but rather was handled in SOU 29, WPR 39. L&N 3, and SP 101.
Mileage - 3,616.

From the SRHA archives:
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?
