Q&A: Annual reports of the Western Pacific Railroad to the Interstate Commerce Commission

Question:
I'm looking for the annual filings of the Western Pacific Railroad to the Interstate Commerce Commission, which are done on Form R-1. Do you have those reports for the years 1960 through 1980?

Answer:
We don't archive original filings of companies with either the Commerce Dept. or the Interstate Commerce Commission. However, after doing some research on the railroad filings with the ICC, we discover that these filings were used for, among other things, compiling the Annual Report on Transport Statistics. The original Forms R-1 were also used by the IRS for tax purposes. The ICC statistical parts, compiled in the Annual Report on Transport Statistics, do have specific statistics for each railroad, including the Western Pacific. We have these statistical reports for the years 1954 through 1994.
