Chicago in Less Than Three Days -- May 16, 2014

"Double Drawing-Room Sleeping Cars, Buffet, Smoking and Library Cars, with barber.  Dining Cars -- meals a la carte.  Daily Tourist Car Service and Personally Conducted Excursions every week from San Francisco at 6 p.m.  The best of everything."  This ad from the 21-October-1901 San Francisco Call promotes service from San Francisco to Chicago in less than three days via Union Pacific and the Chicago and North Western.  Southern Pacific would be in there, too.
