Another public timetable gem -- thanks. Soo Line timetables are not very commonly collected or displayed. Neat to see one from this era.

I posted one the other week which was effective June 25th, 1961. It only had the Soo-Dominion (table 1), Twin Cities-Portal (table 2), the Laker (3), Chicago-Twin Cities (4), Chicago-Calumet (6), and the Winnipeger (7).

And I just now noticed that I had typed in Thursday instead of Tuesday, silly me, now corrected.

I would think Waukesha would be a much better traffic generator today, than back in 1961.
That's something that they put all the other railroad schedules in for the Minneapolis-Chicago corridor!
Kenora has Devil's Gap, ON as another name.  I hadn't seen that before.
The Laker would probably do very well today, if it was still running.
