Transcription Notes:
mandc: Standard time in time zones was instituted in the U.S. and Canada by the railroads on November 18, 1883. Prior to that, time of day was a local matter, and most cities and towns used some form of local solar time. Prior to this many train wrecks occurred due to time confusion.
