Physical Data and Other Information of Interest - 1954

The Nickel Plate Road published a series of books titled "Physical Data and Other Information of Interest" which contained information on the road's physical property, such as number of tracks, miles, curves, grades, bridges, traffic controls, signals, ties, sidings; amount of ballast; and amount of rail laid and removed. More importantly, the books contained information on every station and significant mile post along each route, including population, facilities, interchanges and crossings, interlocking plants, industries, sidings and spurs, etc. The books are a valuable source of information for anyone wanting to become familiar with the operation of the Nickel Plate Road. The NKP published a book for each district. The books listed below are the 1954 Revision of each book.

The books were contributed by Peter K. Shepherd.
