Overnight to the Llano Estacado
Author: PVSfan

I can think of three ways one could travel from Dallas/Ft Worth to Lubbock back in the day.
This ink blotter ad indicates one of the ways. [One would have passed through 2 tunnels on
the route.]

By the way, does anyone have a photo of the FW&DSP motorcar that once ran out of Lubbock?

One would have to be beat after that 12 hour trip of which about a third  was on branch line tracks.  Today's drive time about five hours.
