    Gettysburg & Harrisburg Railroad Journal for the year 1884. A daily account of activity, spanning the first of January to mid-December 1884, for the Gettysburg & Harrisburg Railroad, a twenty-one and a half mile stretch of rails between Carlisle and Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The first entry, dated January 1, 1884, records that construction on the rail line is ongoing, but because of the unusual weather "...Railroad building stopped...Cant lay track amid so much water and snow..." Information contained within includes trips on the line by former Union and Confederate soldiers as they journey to Gettysburg for reunions, a day by day account of the weather, train accidents, transportation of livestock, etc. At the end is a list of "Annual Passes Issued in 1884" including to whom the pass was issued and the person's residence. Rear board has detached and there is damage to the spine. The textblock, for the most part, remains tight and the text is bold and bright.

    Estimate: $450 - up.
