CPRR payroll records


I'm a history graduate student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln working on a digital research project, "Railroads and the Making of Modern America." What I am looking for is any payroll lists of CPRR employees in from the 1840s-1880s (I'm especially interested in the strike year of 1877), and I noticed some employee names and positions on one of the museum's web pages

If your archive has them (usually they are bound volumes), then can some part of them (say the 1877 year) be copied and sent to me for a fee? If not, could you perhaps point me in the right direction so that I can find them? Thank you for responding to this inquiry quickly.
