Excerpt from The Railway Library 1910: A Collection of Noteworthy Addresses and Papers Following the precedent of 1909, the Library of 1910 opens with a retrospect of American railways condensed from the sketch of the rise and progress of the Railways of the United States written by Mr. Henry V. Poor, for volume one of Poor's Manual for 18681869. Mr. Poor was then looking back over the first half of [the history of rail ways on this continent. Looking forward, optimist though he was, his imagination did not quite comprehend the amazing development of the second period of two score years just ended. Supplementing Mr. Poor's Sketch, in a way, is a brief account of the 75th anniversary of the first railway in Ger many. Singular to relate, this railway was never extended beyond its projected three and three-quarter miles from Nurnberg to Furth, and is still an independently operated railway. With these for an historical background, the remaining papers of this issue seek to present the varied aspects of the railway Situation in the United States today as reflected in the utterances of men closely identified with What they are writing or talking about.
