C&O Coal Waybills

In addition to the interesting details of handling coal traffic from the mines to the weighing and waybilling location mentioned in Tony's post (108842) and associated blog entry, the C&O (and according to Andy Laurent the CRR and N&W) used an interesting (at least to me) waybill format from the weighing and waybilling location to the consignee. It was half the width and the same length as a standard waybill and had a neat mixture of handwritten, stamped, and typed entries in the data fields. Since the C&O shipped a lot of coal through the Port of Milwaukee via the car ferries, I thought this format would be an interesting variation; those interested can see the model waybill at:
