1) Bond number 6!!! For the Blue Ridge Railroad Company. 1869. Signed by president JW Harrison and secretary (?). It was originally chartered in 1852 as the Blue Ridge Railroad of South Carolina. Original plans were for a 195-mile line from Anderson, South Carolina, to Knoxville, Tennessee going through the mountains with as many as 13 tunnels. By 1859, the railroad had built between Anderson and West Union, South Carolina and substantial work on several tunnels had started. However, with the outbreak of the Civil War, no further work was ever completed on the tunnels despite efforts after the war, including one by the Black Diamond Railroad. A final extension from West Union to Walhalla, South Carolina at the urging of the Town Council and local citizens saw the first train arrive November 14, 1877, but no more track would ever be laid along the alignment up Stumphouse Mountain. Edges are rough and coupons have been cut cancelled. Some are quite bad! 38 coupons remain. 2) Central Railway Company of Georgia. 1895. Signed by secretary W Findley and president R A---town. Coupons 22 to 100 are still attached, but have been hole cancelled. 3) Stock size mortgage preference 5% gold bond for the Georgia & Alabama Railway. Number 1220. Unissued and hole punch cancelled. Extremely nice. Date: 1869-1895 Location: Georgia HWAC# 58262
