REGULAR SUMMER CHANGE OF TIME The Summer schedule of the New York Central lines will take effect at 12 :0t A. M., Sunday, June 1 8th, 1905. Some of the changes will be as follows : The Fast Mail will reach New York at 9:17, instead of 10 A.M. The Second Empire will leave New York at t :57 instead of 2:30 P. M. The Southwestern Limited will leave New York at 2:04 instead of 1 :00 P. M., reaching St. Louis at 5 :00 P. M. next day, saving 2 hours and 32 minutes. The Twentieth Century Limited will leave New York at 3 :30 instead of 2 :45 P. M., arriving in Chicago at 8 :30 the next morning, instead of 9:45. Returning, this train will leave Chicago at 2 :3o instead of 1 2 :30 P. M., and reach New York the same as now, at 9:30 next morning. MAKING THE TIME BETWEEN NEW YORK AND CHICAGO 18 HOURS. This is simply applying on the Lake Shore, between Buffalo and Chicago, the time the Empire State Express has been making from New York to Buffalo on the New York Central for fourteen years, viz., 440 miles in 8 hours and 15 minutes, and retains for the New York Central lines the long distance record of the world. The Twentieth Century Limited will enable its patrons to reach Milwaukee in 20 ' hours, St. Paul in 31 hours and Minneapolis in 32 hours, from New York. By the New York Central lines and their connections, the time from New York to Denver will be 52y2 hours; to San Francisco, Los Angeles, Portland or Tacoma, 4 days, and to Seattle, 4 days. It may be interesting to note that the running of fast trains by the New York Central lines is quite an old story now. In 1893, twelve years ago, the New York Central and Lake Shore, for the 180 days of the World's Fair at Chicago, ran their "Exposition Flyer" between New York and Chicago in 20 hours and for the past three years the Twentieth Century Limited has performed the same service to the country, saving for our busy men practically a day in the journey between the two great cities of the continent; and for fourteen years the New York Central has had in service its Empire State Express, the most famous passenger train in the world, and the fastest train for its distance. In 1891 the New York Central ran an experimental train from New York to East Buffalo, 436 miles, in 42594 minutes. This time included 4 stops and 28 slow-downs running through towns and cities.
