Scope & Content Manual: Erie Lackawanna Railroad Company; The New Jersey and New York Railroad Company. Rules of the Operating Department. Effective October 25, 1964. Reprint No. 2, February 1970.

Softcover book, 4" x 8-1/8" high, 114 pp.(lacking pg [i], removable registration form) plus covers. Book No.20033. Belonging to R.A. Brush, Engineer, 435. Several corrections pasted or laid in with dates of 1972 and 1974. (similar items were among the accompanying documents below.)

With: five accompanying documents; two from Consolidated Rail Corporation (Conrail - it took over control of the Erie Lackawanna in April 1976) one being a general order dated June 16, 1976. See list in notes.

Hoboken or Lackawanna Terminal was the eastern rail terminus for these railroads and one of the locations where this rule book would have applied.

When first issued in 1964 the Erie Lackawanna was called "Railroad," but by the time this 1970 reprint was distributed it had been renamed "Railway" (April 1968) which is correctly stated on some of the printed amendments or additions found in the book.

Notes Enclosures:

1: printed sheet with 8 amendments, all "Effective February 1, 1974."

Leaf 5-5/8" high x 8" high, gummed adhesive back, with perforations; the eight amendments to rules plus a column directing where the change is to be placed.

2 & 3: clipped mimeographed amendments, rule changes, covering two rules also found at bottom of enclosure 1. Note that only the printed sheet has the General Order (G.O.) number(s) and effective date.

The three items above are typical of several that are found either pasted over leaves in the rule book or if clipped, inserted (laid-in) where the rule was found.
