Here is the first issue in original paper wrappers of a short-lived railroad periodical that lasted just two years.  With the fast expansion of railroads across the country, John Hillyer must have thought there was a market for a periodical with news and articles about the railroad industry.  It contains a number of articles that include information including technical details, history, and tables of securities of railroads around the world.
