Re: SP Line Operated by UP

Looking at a 1911 annual SP pass issued to an employee - a conductor (posted on Sacramento History on line) I note it is valid only on "lines between Ashland, Ore., Sparks, Nev., and Rio Grande River, N.M." SP-owned lines operated by UP subsidiaries (and SP Texas lines) are excluded. Also the pass was signed by E. E. Calvin, Vice President and General Manager. (Is this the same guy who was in Oregon earlier?)

It's also not good on suburban (commute) trains in the Bay Area.
