Search this website for information about collecting stocks and bonds.


Search the Coxrail database for descriptions of 23,700+ certificates from over 7,400 North American railroad companies.

More searching hints

At least two characters are required in the search field..

The goal is to speed up your search among the 26,000-plus companies, and yet return the smallest number of possibilities. To accomplish that, add a few more parts of the company name if you know it.

You do not need to spell out entire words.

In fact, it is better to use partial words. Every extra letter you type merely increases your chances for no finding what you want. Obviously, the more you type, the greater your chances of mistakes. More importantly, you will never know how company names might have been spelled in my source material. Moreover, many names can be hyphenated or broken into two words. You might not find the correct company with overly strict spelling.

I ALWAYS recommend entering word fragments instead of whole words. Here are some examples of my recommendations for speeding up your searches.

If searching for "Aberdeen Huron & Southern Railway Co", enter these word fragments.

If searching for "The New York Central & Hudson River Railroad Co", enter these word fragments.

If searching for "13th & 15th Streets Passenger Railway Co of Philadelphia", enter these word fragments.

If searching for "Columbus Chicago & Indianapolis Central Railway Co", enter these word fragments.

If searching for "New York Pittsburg & Chicago Construction Co", enter these word fragments.
