Scope & Content Instructions and Information in relation to Transportation of Free Passengers. The Delaware Lackawanna and Western Railroad. In Effect January 1, 1924. Revised to Conform to the Interstate Commerce Commission's Regulations. Office of Vice President and General Manager.

Booklet, 4" x 6-1/4" high, 30 pp. PDF on file.

The D.L.& W. office that produced this manual (date code on cover "10-23" indicates when it was made) was in New York City. Non-paying or reduced fare passengers were a significant concern to the company. Hoboken, where the railroad had its eastern terminus, would have been an important operational area where it would have been applied. This book of rules and regulations describes the many kinds of passes and the policies regarding their use.

The cover title text varies from the title page:
Rules Governing the Issuance and Use of Passes. Superseding All Previous Instructions Relating to Free or Reduced Rate Transportation.

Form V.P. 21

Note: the spelling of "employee" in all text with one 'e' was consistently used by both the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western R.R. and its successor, Erie-Lackawanna.
