Re: Travel time on the Valley road.

About what I'd expect across the board...with the sole surprise (but logical questioning) over the quicker timecard in 1895...I would presume that, earlier,  there was a bit less express loading time, smaller tenders hence less need for water somewhere along the way – or rather, with larger tenders later on, the need for a few more min's to take H20 and a few more parcels in the Wells Fargo express car, or maybe a bit more US mail or both...and maybe a few more passengers later on, too.
Either way, the differences are not too great...
