As part of the hobby, I enjoy collecting a wide variety of memorabilia. Materials such as timetables, rulebooks and manuals are very educational and fun to hunt for as I'm constantly surprised by the things I find. I feel as though I'm a caretaker for the items I'm lucky enough to acquire. They really help to tell the story of railroading.
Here's a rulebook currently in my collection:
This is Chessie System Form CDT-29 with an effective date of April 27, 1969 reprinted June 1977. Lettered for C&O/B&O, the book sets forth rules governing the operations of both railroads, not including lines in Canada. Mr. C.V. Cowan was V.P. of Operations at the time.
I'd be interested in hearing from others who have railroadiana of any type in their collections. Pictures of your items would be great if you can manage it.
