No. 841 issued to Sherwin for 1883. Signed by vice president John Lang. Huge detailed vignette of bridge at the Watkins Glen Viaduct on the Syracuse, Geneva, and Corning (SG&C) RR line. Fancy script! Reverse has pen notation from John Lang that this pass is "Good over the Jersey Shore Pine Creek & Buffalo Railway." The Fall Brook Coal Company was a coal company in northern Pennsylvania which played an important role in the New York Central's extension into the Clearfield coal region. Founded by John Magee, who was an early investor in railroads as they would be a much better way to transport his coal. Magee was deeply involved in railroad promotion in Steuben County, New York. He was one of the incorporators of the New York and Erie Railroad, and was part of two construction syndicates which built the Erie's line from Binghamton, New York via Elmira to Corning in 1849. John Lang, treasurer of the Fall Brook, took the same position on the SG&C in 1875. He would be vice president by 1886.
