Pension eligibility from the Railroad

I am trying to locate a website for pension eligibility from the Railroad, I was employed for the Milwaukee Railroad for 13 years, and worked in management for part of that time. I have been unable to locate any information to determine if I am eligible to receive a pension through the railroad.

This is in addition to the railroad retirement benefits.

Train travel in 1928, Montreal to Los Angeles

From: "Ken Horowitz"

I'm hoping you can point me in the right direction for this query: where could I find out the time required to travel by rail from Montreal to Los Angeles in 1928?

I'd love to find timetables that would show details. But even knowing whether it was 4 days or 10 days (or whatever) would be very useful. Some idea of the cost would be nice to know as well.

I've been google-ing for a while, and the closest I've come are some of the trans-continental maps on your site. So I'm hoping you might be able to point me in the right direction.

It begins to look as though a traveler at that time would have had to travel on multiple lines – could they buy through-tickets? or did they have to book section by section?
