Hi All,

Are any of you aware of the location of the J&S order book covering 1893-4? The usual sources (Hagley, Smithsonian, Delaware H.S.) don't seem to have these.
Does anyone know if these records are available somewhere, or if I've missed them at the locations mentioned above?

Thanks,
Steve Piwowarski

Oddly, there are very detailed J&S records at the Archives Center, National Museum of American History (i.e. at the Smithsonian) as you mentioned, though it looks like your period is missing for non-electric cars for some reason. Could they be included in the electric car order book? Could that period have been lost in a fire etc?

PMC- thanks! It had not occurred to me to check the electric car orders to see if it erroneously would up there.
It has also occurred to me to broaden my search net a bit. During a recent search online I saw an 1894 J&S catolog. This could have some useful information. Does anyone know where one could be found?

Thanks,
Steve

I have an original of the 1894 book and some shop spec and assembly documents for 1903 narrow gauge first, second, and third class coaches for the Yucatan railroad and several early coach assembly sepia photos.
