I have a set of ten personal diaries from a foreman on the Erie Railroad, Wyoming Division. Very detailed entries mention inspection trips on locomotives by number and destination, repairs to engines, employee issues, testing a new Baldwin and also family/life events. One has the newspaper clipping of his father's death between the pages. Penmanship is fairly good and nearly every date has an entry.

Locations mentioned frequently would be the Dunmore roundhouse, Wimmers, Avoca, etc. These are detailed enough that you could compile an engine roster for the Wyoming Division. There is at least one wreck described, which I verified through newspapers. Just a really fascinating look into the life of a road foreman in the early 1900s. Years included are 1908, 1910-1915, 1917-1919.

I am asking $1000 for the collection and will not split them up. Please DM through board.

Thanks
