Chris, Glad you like the ads. Hopefully others will post what they have or can find. I couldn't find much after 1910. All the posts are JPEG files so they can be downloaded and enlarged or printed on ones computer if they can't be read online. There's some interesting stuff in the fine print. Enjoy, RR

Richard, Thank you for doing these ads, like Chris said, a lot of these I also haven't seen.I noticed a Hampden railroad grade on a few of the ads that seems unusual to me, the 16S 17J "John C. Dueber".I've seen and heard of the 21J version, didn't know of a 17J J.C.D. Really nice job! Thanks again, Ted.

That last one is particularly helpful to me. I have an 1899 New Railway in 21j, and ads that reference it are rare. The New Railway appears to have only been made in 23j for a short time before the 23j Special Railway superseded it and Hampden downgraded the New to 17j.
Oddly, I have a New Railway in 23j and a Special Railway in 17j (it's a very early one from 1889.)
