Found this in my FILs belongings.  It appears to a train schedule on his way home.  Growing up in a railroad family not surpised he kept a log of every stop all the way across the country.  It is 3 pages long.  What I thought was really cool was the letter head, no idea where he would have gotten it because while he was in the Navy he was a SeaBee so having a sub on the letterhead struck me as odd.

FYI, the station stops were served by the Southern Pacific RR, the exact same route along which the infamous City of San Francisco train wreck occurred in 1939 (which was an act of sabotage).

In Utah, he appears to have changed trains to the Union Pacific.
