Collection contains outlined corporate histories of railroads in the United States and Canada. The collection covers almost
every railroad that ever operated in the United States and Canada and includes some records of roads that were projected though
never built, and some information on street car lines and electric interurban lines. These outlines are in long hand on loose
leaf 8½ × 11 inches notebook paper. They include dates of incorporation, brief sketches of the history of the line, lists
of points served, lists of mileage, and occasionally time schedules, maps of lines, and lists or reports of accidents on the
lines. Unfortunately, the collection is incomplete, and the information provided is much more extensive for the larger lines.
