My apologies for using the space and bandwidth but this attached letter from the WofA/A&WP provides probably the best explanation of why the they did not want the SF-Washington tourist sleeper included in the consist of train number 38 (Later known as “The Crescent Limited”). Connection times in New Orleans were not (!) the reason…”inferior class of travel” was!
