Subject: Question regarding "Southern Pacific System List of officers agencies and stations" book

I have a quick question regarding the book, Southern Pacific System, List of officers, agencies and stations for 1899, there's a sticker on the front cover of the 1899 book that says 1900, 1902, 1903, 1904 and 1905. Can you tell where it how I can locate a copy of those books? ...

Those may refer to the contemporaneous handwritten notations added to the 1899 printed book to update for subsequent years, possibly relating to indexing Profile and Road books.

This 1899 printed book was rescued by Lynn Farrar, and later generously loaned to for a few days so that it could be scanned. Don't know if this physical book was included in his donation to the California State Railroad Museum in Sacramento, or what other books may have accompanied.
