AMERICAN RAILROAD JOURNAL, New York, Oct. 16, 1845

* Early on the railroad industry

An early issue of the very first American periodical on railroading. The best feature of this newspaper might be the engravings of a railroad engines and coaches as well as related railroad devices & inventions, as found on pages 1, 2 & 3.
The balance of the issue is taken up with a wide range of railroad-related articles with a wealth of illustrated advertisements as well.
Sixteen pages, 8 1/2 by 11 inches, very nice condition.
