January 1938 Official Guide - Download


This version of the January 1938 Official Guide can be downloaded to your computer without needing to wait for a CD to arrive in the mail. The downloaded file contains all of the pages from the January 1038 Official Guide, except for the front and rear covers.

Both the Download and the CD versions were created usiing a microfilm scanner. The pages were then cleaned up to enhance and sharpen the images, after which the pages were converted into Adobe Acrobat PDF format and reassambled into a book. The original table of contents was retyped and hyperlinked to the individual pages so that when you click on a railroad name the correct schedule is displayed on the screen. Pages can be viewed, magnified, or printed as you like.

The 1938 Download requires about 370 megabytes of space on a hard disk. There are two versions of the dowload:

  • Windows - the Windows version consists of an installer program which installs the files in a directory and creates an entry in the Start Menu.
  • Macintosh or Linux - the files are bundled in a ZIP archive and need to be extracted into a directory of your choice after the download is complete
