Cost of Railroad Ticket

From: "Helen Steinbrueck"

I found your website most informative ... With respect to the cost of a train ticket in 1893, would it be possible for you to give me a general dollar amount for going from Rock Springs, Wyoming to any major city in New Hampshire? Would the cost be doubled if it were a roundtrip ticket.

I am writing a story and would like one of my characters to take this trip. The Panic of 1893 also occurred and there were numerous bankruptcies filed by the railroads.

If this is not too onerous, I would appreciate greatly any information you might be able to provide. ...

Thank you so much!!

I found your site so interesting, I bookmarked it. It is gratifying to know that this history will not be lost so that future generations will know where about out country and those who built it.

Thanks again,
