thank you for making the Official Rail Guide of 1910 available online. You have saved me many hours of research and much irritation for people I might have bugged to find the information I need for a book I'm writing about a widowed mother's determination to save her two young sons from the dire poverty and noisome pollution of St. Louis slums. Although she makes her escape in 1900, the volume for 1910 told me what I needed to know: how she traveled from St. Louis to Malta, Montana, to take up a homestead.

Thank you!

I've gone in circles looking for train schedules and ticket prices for travel between Iowa and Illinois between 1890 and 1930. Could you direct me how to search for ticket price and destination information for that time period?

Yes. I started out with Official Rail Guide, 1910 but holy moley! It's nearly 1500 pages! But I'll look at these. It won't matter if I use my time there or use it searching, searching, searching. Thanks. BTW I did search newspapers for RR information. It takes a lot of sifting but I did find some examples. Not exactly what I need but since I didn't have anything at all, I saved them.
