Hi! I've had this albumen photo (6x3") for many years and I'd love to know more about it. I did find out that it's Cumberland & Pennsylvania Railway Co. ... Any info would be very much appreciated. Thank you! - Sam

Well, after a bit more searching, I found that this is Chicago & Pacific Railroad. A Feb. 14, 1874 edition of Railroad Gazette has an item announcing that T.S. Dobbins is made president of the company.
