Cincinnati, New Orleans & Texas Pacific Railway Co. , Conductor Receipt, Collison, H.  (agent)
1 Collison, H. (agent) Cincinnati, New Orleans & Texas Pacific Railway Co. , Conductor Receipt
Cincinnati Cincinnati, New Orleans & Texas Pacific Railway Co. 1873 Softcover Very Good- 
Conductor's receipt with punch holes showing information on date and destination of passenger. Besides the punch holes there is wear on the right edge, where this was torn fom a booklet and general aging. Remarkable condition for a piece of fragile ephemera. ; Oblong 64mo 3" - 4" tall; 1 pages; This Conductor's Receipt has the name of the rail road along with "Queen and Crescent Route" which ran from Cincinnati to New Orleans. The Cincinnati, New Orleands and Texas Pacific was owned by the City of Cincinnati. Its route through Tennessee was famously known as the "Rathole" because of curves and tunnels. I believe it is now part of Norfolk Southern.

The receipt has general aging and wear along with some small creases and a few very small holes on line under illustration of a train. Overall the receipt is VG. The telegrams were, at one time, separated on the folds, but at some point someone taped them back together. Not a bad job, but still old tape.
