The transcontinental travel guides were sold to passengers at news stands. Many copies bear news stand markings.

Also see, Trans-Continental 1870 Excursion On-board Newspaper.

Don't know if sold directly to passengers, but Harper's Weekly Newspaper and Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper had various illustrated articles about the transcontinental railroad.
