Annual Reports

A very large percentage of the information on this site has come from the annual reports of the various railroad companies. On Annual Reports to Stockholders Locations, I have listed the annual reports I have found and where you can find a copy of each one. Obviously, there are many railroads and many years for which no annual reports have been located and other sources have been used to fill in. Below are several annual reports to give you a feel for the contents of these source documents. Most reports were about 30 pages long, but some ran to 180 pages. I am also posting transcriptions of the President's, Superintendent's and chief Engineer's Reports on the various railroads' home pages.

I have made copies of every annual report I have been able to locate. Should you need information from them, I will be glad to assist.
