New Royal Palm : LUSENET : Georgia Southern & Florida RR Historical Society : One Thread

An adder to my prior question regarding the New Royal Palm. What was the date of its inagural and last runs? The years will be OK.

First run was either December, 1949 or January, 1950. Last run was was March or April, 1955. It was listed in the March 10, 1955, timetable, but not in the May 15, 1955, issue that succeeded it. Most Winter Season trains were discontinued for the season around Easter weekend, so I don't see it running until the May 15 timetable was issued.

Hope this helps.
