Former Nashville, Chattanooga, and St. Louis Railroad Bridge
Posted October 8, 2014, by Patricia Jackson (jackson5749 [at] gmail [dot] com)

In my attic, I have found the original draftsman sketch of the "N.C. & St L. Ry...BR No 30.6 north Stones River-Chatt Div Main line. Showing pile pier to strengthen span and to facilitate the erection of the new concrete pier. Office of hief Engineer-March 15, 1917. DR, No 801-1-M."

Again these are the originals not copies...originals...they were in a cardboard tube and in outstanding condition.

Is there a market for this? Are they worth anything?
