Based on :iconborisfedorov:

This is the fictionalized Burlington Route passenger schedules and consists for my alternate history.

Color code:
Blue- Crack train stops
Green- express train stops
Orange- Generic station stops
Pink- Commuter lines

Crack trains
These are actually fleets of trains that all use the same exact route, with up to 10 trains bearing the name going out on their route a day.

A S-4 Hudson steam engine, or EMD E5 units pull these fleets of trains. It usually depends on which type of the engines is available at the time the trains is prepared to leave.

The California Zephyr 
Chicago- Burlington- Omaha- Denver

NP/ GN connecting Trains
Chicago- La Crosse- Minneapolis

Express Trains

These are also several different trains operating to the same destinations as the name trains of that line.

Coaches are based on 1940s Pullmans. They are usually powered by the S series 4-6-2 steam locomotives or EMD SD Diesels.

The Kansas City Zephyr 
Chicago- Quincy- Kansas City 

The Pioneer Zephyr 
Kansas City- Billings- Casper- Denver

The Sam Houston 
Denver- Quanah- Fort Worth
Take Rock Island to Houston

The Zephyr Rocket
St. Louis- Hannibal- Burlington
Take Rock Island to Twin Cities

Normal Trains
These trains consist of coaches based on the coaches used on 1940s Pullmans that are powered by SD diesels. They stop at all the generic stations along the route, which often consists of the lines crack and express trains run over.


Branch Line trains
These trains are powered by  in the cased of mixed trains, or Budd Rail cars, in the case of passenger trains). Meanwhile, 2-8-0s handle most freight trains.

Switchers
These are mostly 0-8-0s, small diesels, or outdated steam locomotive models.
