The page is here: http://railsunlimited.ribbonrail.com/Books/shippers.html
Recent additions are Pennsylvania RR, New York Central RR (including Pittsburgh and Lake Erie), Reading RR, New Haven, Western Pacific, Denver Rio Grande, and Icing Stations. There are also directories from Chicago Switching District, RI (2 ea), UP, C&EI, MP, Milw (2 each), GN and CNW. All are on hand an ready to ship.
These shippers guides are very useful for historical research and for preparing accurate waybills for a model railroad. All have a comb binding, allowing them to lay flat when in use.

The referenced WP "shippers' guide" (CIRCULAR 167-E) is actually an internal document rather than the usual industrial directory. It probably was regularly updated with mimeographed inserts. The alleged 1957 version (based on what is missing after the early 1957 abandonment of the Oakland line) is the only one I have encountered. That said, it is filled with tons of useful information. Mine was copied from an original in the CSRM library, and cost me some $60. The listed price of the reprint is well worthwhile.
