Populism in Relation to Railroads

From: "Daniel Schlessinger" daniel@coinstuff.com

I am a national qualifier for a history competition called National History Day, and my project this year concerns the Negative Effects of the Transcontinental Railroad. Your website has been invaluable to my research as well as my general level of interest in the topic.

I wondered if you had or knew of places to find cartoons or pictures of populist movements in relation to the railroad? I have found plenty of textual information on the Omaha Platform, for example, but cannot find many pictures.
