Antebellum American Railroad: 1830-1860 Compendium

Thomas T, Taber III, a long-time member of R&LHS, has devoted much of the more recent years of his life to the compilation of a variety of aids to railroad history research. His Antebellum Railroad Compendium 1830-1860 is an encyclopedic compilation of all major published information about this earliest period of US railroad history. Mr. Taber, who is most appreciative for the opportunity, has kindly allowed the R&LHS website to carry his effort to fill this major gap in Internet knowledge of pre Civil War railroads. The entire work can be viewed here. Taber's address is 504 S. Main Street, Muncy, Pa. 17756.
