Stage Tickets-Southern Exposition-Louisville Kentucky
Item #: NEW-0014909

Click image to enlarge
Condition problems with this strip of  Stage tickets to the Southern Exposition in Louisville.  I think the damage was caused by water, particularly in the middle where it has bleached out and with a tear.  It is one long strip but I had to scan the front and bottom. 

from Wikipedia
The Southern Exposition was a five-year series of World's fairs held in the city of Louisville, Kentucky from 1883 to 1887 in what is now Louisville's Old Louisville neighborhood. The exposition, held for 100 days each year on 45 acres (180,000 m2) immediately south of Central Park, which is now the St. James-Belgravia Historic District, was essentially an industrial and mercantile show. At the time, the exposition was larger than any previous American exhibition with the exception of the Centennial Exposition held in Philadelphia in 1876. U.S. President Chester A. Arthur opened the first annual exposition on August 1, 1883.

Casey Jones Associated Paper Item-Railroad
Item #: NEW-0013416

Click image to enlarge
The fate of John Luther (Casey) Jones is well known.  He was killed in a wreck at Vaughn Mississippi on April 30, 1900 while pulling the Illinois Central's passenger train No 1, The Cannonball Express. "His last words spoken were to his negro fireman, Sim Webb, when he said, "Jump Sim, jump" as he rode his locomotive 382 into the rear end of a freight train standing on the main line."  This paper item shows his wife, Mrs Casey Jones who is pictured on one side with a model of the 382 train "while making a personal appearance sponsored by St Francis County Railroad Club."    The card was given with a crochet made by Mrs. Janie Brady Jones which she has signed.  I assume that the widow was gathering funds for herself and her three children.  The card is slightly smaller than a postcard and is in excellent condition despite it being on cheap paper. I believe this to be a very rare item.

Atlantic Mississippi Ohio RR-1875-Railroad Ticket
Item #: NEW-0012363

Click image to enlarge
Condition problems with this ticket which can be seen in the scan.

Atlantic, Mississippi and Ohio Railroad (AM&O) was formed in 1870 in Virginia from 3 east-west railroads which traversed across the southern portion of the state. Organized and led by former Confederate general William Mahone (1826-1895), the 428-mile line linked Norfolk with Bristol, Virginia by way of Suffolk, Petersburg, Lynchburg, and Salem. The AM&O was promoted as a trade link to the west, and further expansion was envisioned with the goal of increasing Virginia's Ohio Valley and Mississippi Valley commerce. It was heavily backed by investors from England and Scotland.
The AM&O went into receivership after the U.S. Financial Panic of 1873.

Here is part of the history found on the web regarding this small railroad.

The Rutland Railroad was a fabled system located in the New England area. Based out of Rutland, Vermont the railroad is best remembered for the large amount of milk and dairy products it moved over its system and its classic forest green and yellow livery. The railroad finally succumbed to a long battle of money troubles in the early 1960s when a strike collapsed any hope of the Rutland Railroad staying solvent as it shutdown operations in 1961. Today, happily, much of the former Rutland Railroad system is still operated by successor Green Mountain Railroad, which hauls both freight and excursion passenger service over the line, much to the delight of the thousands of passengers which arrive annually to ride aboard its popular trains.

Early railroad advertising letterhead for the Southern Railway company, which according to Wikipedia was a former United States railroad. It was the product of nearly 150 predecessor lines that were combined, reorganized and recombined beginning in the 1830s, formally becoming the Southern Railway in 1894. It was placed under control of the Norfolk Southern Corporation, along with the Norfolk and Western Railway (N&W), in 1982, and was renamed Norfolk Southern Railway in 1990. (The N&W continued to exist as a subsidiary until 1997.) The back of the letterhead is the best part which shows a map of the railway lines for the company.

Mississippi Central Rail Road Company Bill-1865
Item #: NEW-008984

Click image to enlarge
This invoice was printed on the back of another form. Post war item from a Railroad which was the target of much war activity. Grease spot on mid right hand edge. The original Mississippi Central line was chartered in 1852. Construction began in 1853 and the line was completed in 1860, just prior to the Civil War, from Canton, Mississippi to Jackson, Tennessee. The southern terminus of the line connected to the New Orleans, Jackson and Great Northern Railroad at Canton. It also connected to the Memphis and Charleston Railroad at Grand Junction, Tennessee and the Mobile and Ohio Railroad at Jackson, Tennessee. The Mississippi Central was the scene of several military actions from 1862 - 1863 and was severely damaged during the fighting. Company president, Absolom M. West succeeded in repairing the damage and returning it to operating condition soon after the end of the War. The original Mississippi Central line was merged into the Illinois Central Railroad subsidiary Chicago, St. Louis and New Orleans Railroad in several transactions finally completed in 1878.
