   This listing is an attempt to show all the information without regard to any particular period. The mileposts and call letters changed over time in the employee timetables. The Northern Division is set up with the main line as of 1954. I have not found information at locations indicated by a Call Letter ---> or <--- Mile Post or a ?.
