Purpose of the project
My primary purpose in building this website is to make a community where you and I can share information about RAILROAD STOCKS AND BONDS.
The collecting of North American railroad stocks and bonds is very popular in the United States, Canada, Germany, and Great Britain. Nonetheless, by comparison to the stamp and coin hobbies, we are spread very thin indeed.
We need someplace where we can communicate on an on-going basis. Here on the web, we have a perfect place; distances do not exist.
Over the years, we have dramatically improved our collective level of knowledge. Since this is a one-man project, I do not have time to do things as quickly as I would like, so please be patient.
While you are here, please look around the website a while. I am constantly adding more pages to the site, so you can always make suggestions about content and direction.
I work under the assumption that I am only one tiny part of the number of collectors who will extend indefinitely into the future. While I have opinions, I never assume that I am correct more than about half the time. In my world, YOU, and collectors like you, fill out the parts and the information I miss. I depend on YOU to correct my mistakes, oversights and over-statements.
When you contribute knowledge about stock and bond collecting, you are helping every other collector out there. For now and years into the future.
Whether you are a raw beginner or a seasoned expert, I invite you to join in. Click on How You Can Help.
One final thing. I am a cataloger. I collect information. While I occasionally buy certificates for my tiny personal collection, I am NOT a serious collector. Nor am I a dealer.
Therefore, I have no interest in pushing prices higher nor in keeping them depressed. I report on prices as I see them.
I DO NOT enjoy talking about myself, but I occasionally have people who ask. If you want to learn more, you may open this seldom-visited biography page.
I strongly recommend buying the Cox Catalog from your favorite
