Train Timetable, 1888This image is a screen-shot of a railway timetable from the June 2, 1888 edition of the Victoria Advocate, Victoria, TX. Scans from the paper are available online here.

I have a character who needs to talk to the conductor of the train from Victoria to Port Lavaca. Thanks to this schedule, I know how many trains there are a day and what there departure/arrival times are.

    I wonder if the trains always ran during the day so that they could inspect the tracks.

      I hadn’t thought of that. I’ll look into it. Not that I need any other tangents to look up right now.
