Ashcroft's Railway Directory
The Ashcroft's Railway Directory contains five annual volumes of this fascinating publication. Each edition runs approximately 200 pages and contains an official list of all the officers and directors of the railroads in the United States and Canada along with details about their financial condition and amount of rolling stock. Because of the completeness of coverage of the railroads, this set makes an excellent reference series for people interested in this era;s railroad company's and the people who ran them. It is also a good genealogical as it details the primary movers and shakers of the railroad industry during the early to mid 1860s.
Here are some page images from a few of the issues so you can see some of the typical contents of the volumes.
