Train Number Summary
  
This is a composite list of scheduled NP passenger and freight trains. The passenger trains operated by the NP in 1930 were compiled by John F. Strauss, Jr. and the freight train data comes from the NP Train Brief book issued June 23, 1969. Train numbers changed very little from the start of passenger service, but trains were added and removed from service from time to time. However, the Seattle to Portland mainline direction changed from west to east in 1932, changing affected train numbers.
