A scarce informational and promotional pamphlet for the services of the Union Pacific and Central Pacific Railroads during 1883. The first section of text prints fare information and extensive time tables for the services of the two railroads, as well as selected rail and steam ship connections. The second half of the work provides information on reaching nearby towns and points of interest along the routes, and promotional text concerning the attractions of Western states, such as the Black Hills, Yellowstone, and Yosemite, and advertising the ease with which they can be reached via rail. The pamphlet includes two maps. The first, printed as part of the text, shows the routes of the two railroads across the West, and the second, folding, shows the railroads of the Northeast and Midwest by which one could reach the Union Pacific embarkation points at Omaha, St. Joseph, Leavenworth, and Kansas City. We locate a single copy, at the Huntington.
