NOTE: The good trains displayed for 1956 are not all of routes ad trains available. There were usually many others, but we have not included those involving an avoidably lengthy roundabout route (unless it is an especially scenic one), or long distance trains without a Dining Car, or overnight trains without Sleeping Cars (unless there is an equally convenient companion train with Sleepers), or poor connections, or trains involving departures / arrivals in the wee small hours of the morning. We have chosen to emphasize the quality and convenience that was available then, at a time when these things, plus overall speed, were at their peak.
