Background
The California State Railroad Museum Corporate Miscellany Collection is a collection of miscellaneous material assembled by the Califonia State Railroad Museum Library & Archives' staff since 1981. The purpose for the collection is to gather loose items relevant to specific corporations, and to have them accessible for researchers interested in a particular railroad. It may serve as a supplementary collection of research material in association with a specific corporate collection found in the California State Railroad Museum Library & Archives. In addition, it may be the only subject file(s) relevant to a railroad whose official records are not in the repository.
