I'm stumped. Can someone help me out?

The SSW and SP ran a hotshot freight via the Sunset Route in the form of the BSM (Blue Streak Merchandiser).

Later, there became differing schedules (BSMF, BSMFF where "F" stands for "Forwarder" and thus conferring on the FF more authority/priority than even God could provide) and there is quite a bit of info on them, except the big question; In which year did this train (schedule) start operating?

My usual haunts for SP/T&NO/SSW info have failed me this rare time, but I know that the schedule operated for some 60 years. 60 years rearward would get you to 1936 if measuring from SPs official (presumed) demise in 1996.

The problem is, I believe the schedule was dumped before 09/11/96. Accounting for this, the actual date could be as far back as 1931 and before.

So, I could use the help.


Thanks.
