The Green Library of Stanford University in Palo Alto, California, has a large collection of early issues, the earliest being under the original title of Sechrist's Hand Book and Railway Equipment and Mileage Guide. When I enquired at the end of last year for the CB&Q pages from 1886 and 1889 (obviously for freight cars still on the roster in 1901), I found that they didn't have a copying service, and I thought it was a bit far to travel!

Going back how early, Chuck? I'd sure like to find more 19th
century issues available somewhere convenient.
