RE: Pan Am 20 Years Gone

Hard to believe Pan Am has been gone 20 years,seeing the logo on rail cars is not the same. In pre-deregulation
Pan Am always made a attempt to get domestic routes,I noticed Pan Am never served Canada,Did they ever apply
for rights to fly to Canada like Toronto and Montreal etc.

RE: TWA In Zanesville,Marion,Mansfeild Ohio

I just purchsed a TWA timetable January 1953 off Ebay from Dave Keller,It shows service to these
three stations. TWA discontinued service to these staions in June 1953.I guess they could not compete
with Lake Central and BTW I think TWA retired their DC-3s in 1953.
