Abstract
California State Railroad Museum Corporate Miscellany Collection is an assembled collection of miscellaneous material pertaining to various railroads and railroad-related companies. The collection contains documents, publications, and ephemera that are arranged in alphabetical order by subjects.
Scope and Content
The California State Railroad Museum Corporate Miscellany Collection is an assembled collection of miscellaneous material pertaining to various railroads and railroad-related companies. The material was often generated by railroad companies for public relations, business, employee, safety, and legal purposes. Some items are not originals (i.e. photocopies), and the content is not always complete due to it being compiled of multiple small donations and not the donation of a company's full records. As a whole, the collection contains documents, publications, and ephemera.
History / Biographical
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.
Items have been accrued over the years through several donations and transfers, then filed into subjects in alphabetical order pertaining to individual railroads. Over the years, some items have been separated and cataloged individually.
Access Restrictions
Collection is open for research by appointment.

Scope and Content

These reports were preliminary working documents, often compiled prior to the completion of restoration. They do not reflect the findings of more recent research. Museum staff are continuing to assimilate information with the intention of publishing more complete historical records for each locomotive and car in the collection. The Research and Restoration Reports are listed by corporate name, then by road number and in chronological order. MS 621 contains original typescripts and photographs. A reference set is available for study in the Library.
