Manuscript Collection: MsC-82

Robert W. Cox Railroad Collection.  39 linear feet

Description

The Robert W. Cox Railroad Collection offers an extraordinarily wide variety of publications, audiovisual material, images, and realia associated with railroads, with a particular focus on railroads of southern New York, New Jersey, and the American Northeast.  There is also a collection of correspondence, photographs, and other print material relating to the operations and facilities of the Orange and Rockland (New York) Utility Company, and especially to that company's legal relationship with railroads.  Mr. Cox assembled this collection over the course of many years.

Dean of Library Services Christopher Cox, Robert Cox's son, delivered this collection to the University Archives in August 2013.

Boxes 1-2
Correspondence, photographs, clippings
The correspondence documents a portion of the business relationship between railroads and the Orange and Rockland (New York) Utility Company.  Specifically, the correspondence deals with easements, real estate, construction, modifications, safety, rights of way, rent, and other matters relating to the utility company's use of railroad property.  For example, a railroad might write a letter to the utility company to specify how deep a gas line must be buried under its tracks and how it must be maintained.  Only the incoming correspondence, from railroads to the utility company, is present in this file.  Material is arranged first by the name of the railroad, and then, chronologically within that file.  

There is a detailed list for the photographs and clippings located in Box 2.

Boxes 3-10
Books
This collection of approximately 160 books relates to all facets of railroading.  The emphasis of the collection is on American railroads, but there are also books that deal with railroading outside of the United States.  The books include works on specific railroad companies, histories of particular line-building efforts, and close looks at locomotives and rolling stock.  Most of these books are relatively recent, well-illustrated publications.  The books in these boxes are arranged alphabetically by author's name.  Three oversized titles are out of alphabetical sequence and are housed in Box 10. 

Boxes 11-13
Periodicals
This is a collection of periodicals devoted to railroading.  Some of the periodicals include serious historical articles, but most are of a popular nature, with good illustrations.  There are long runs of some periodicals, but only scattered issues of others.  The periodicals in this collection are arranged alphabetically by title.

Boxes 14-20
Audio Visual Material
Like the book collection noted above, this collection of approximately 160 pieces of audiovisual material is devoted to all facets of railroading.  The collection is arranged alphabetically by title.  Most titles are in VHS format, but a few are in DVD format.

Boxes 21-22
Lapel pins and badges
This is an attractive collection of lapel pins and badges relating to railroading.  Most of the pins and badges are associated with attendance at a railroad convention or membership in a railroad group.

Box 23
Greeting Cards and Postcards
This is a collection of greeting cards and postcards relating to railroading.  The greeting cards are commercial in nature.  The postcards document significant facilities in southern New York railroading.

Boxes 24-31
Realia
This is a wide ranging collection of objects relating to railroading.  It includes pieces such as mugs, clothing, trivets, model trains, refrigerator magnets, and signs.

Box 32
Maps and Drawings
This is a small collection of maps and drawings that shows electric lines over railroad tracks.

Photographs and clippings
This is an excellent collection of photographs and images clipped from publications relating to the facilities, work, and operations of the Orange and Rockland (New York) Utility Company.  Many photos are identified and dated.  The folders are arranged chronologically, with dates ranging from1906 through 1998.  The deepest coverage occurs from 1982 through 1992, but, except for a gap from 1961 through 1981, there is reasonable coverage for earlier years.
