Railroad Conductors of the United States 1856.

In 1856, there were over 500 Railroads and 80 branches. Many were small lines and only run a few miles will other were longer. There were many more Railroads then I have put here. These roads were in name only and have not been built yet and well not be found on this list. This list is of the ( Conductors ), only. Although I would like to have been able to listed the trains engineers but they were not listed unless they were undre another title. I have listed the name of the Railroads only I left off were the line run too and the miles of the line. If your interested in that information I will give it up on request. These Railroads will be listed by States.
