    I just bought a couple of SLSF timebooks, one from 1975. It showed the place on duty as KC and
    off duty FT, moving between the two points. I couldn't figure out what it might be, even after looking
    at the map. An employee timetable for the Northern Division came with it and when I looked at the
    tonnage rating page, it had been marked showing what was needed to Ft. Scott, Kansas. It was only then
    that I realized, that it what he meant by FT. The KC for Kansas City is easy to explain, as that had been
    used on waybills for years.
    I worked for the MKT and UP in Texas, St. Louis and Omaha, but I wasn't an expert on the SLSF stations.
    Imagine someone else , trying to figure this out 20 years from now. I have some other Southwestern
    rrs timebooks, and they can be difficult to figure them out.

    Are any train symbols/numbers recorded in any of the timebooks?

    I am listing some of the job numbers in the timebook. I don't have an ett in front of me, so I don't know for sure, if they were train numbers.
    38,61,130,131,134,135,137,139, and 236 for runs between and Kansas City and Ft. Scott and vice versa.

    Michael those are all train numbers.

    Is there any way you can scan the pages of those time books and post them here?
