I have a number of stocks and bonds in my collection that I would like to post. Here are a few Railroad Stocks.

I'm not a collector of stock certificates, but I do love these things with the ornate designs and unsurpassed printing quality. Probably railroad enthusiasts would enjoy them, too.

Very nice. Thanks for sharing. I would love to see some for the railroads that ran between Chicago and St Louis.

The Penn Central was formed in 1968 from the merger of the Pennsylvania Railroad and the New York Central. They operated until 1976.

I'm thinking of starting a "Monopoly" and become a robber baron for the Pennsylvania RR, Reading RR, B&O RR, and Short Line RR. Now that would be a cool set of stock certificates & bonds!

Just picked up a Gulf, Mobile, & Ohio Railroad (GM&O) from 1945 today at a model train show.

StamperDude,

I suspect this one ran between those 2 cities. What's nice is the RN Series Revenue stamp on the document.

I also have
Philadelphia Rapid Transit Company, 1920
Philadelphia Traction Company, 1920

wow beautiful! I live in an old Rail Road town on the NYC line in N.E.C.PA. and would just relish these! I have seen only 2 or 3 in real life and just love the fine lines and engravings. Stunning to think that someone laboured so long to make them! They rival US paper currency in beauty IMO. I bet they are expensive to collect huh? Interesting indeed!

Stamp Lover,

Not too expensive, you just need to go to stamp shows, spend some time going thru their material. Then again, what's expensive is determined by one's budget.
