Notes regarding other industries and railways not treated elsewhere.

The purpose of this section is to broaden the context of Argentine railway history documenting the varied interests of railway directors in other aspects of the Argentine economy. Includes directors' reports, reports of proceedings at shareholder meetings, financial data, shareholder lists, liquidation statements, stock exchange quotations, etc. Comprises reports and news that appeared in the Boletín Oficial de la República Argentina, London Gazette, London Stock Exchange Year-Book, Money Market Review, Herapath's Railway Journal, The Railway Times, The South American Journal, The Economist, The Statist, l'Économiste français and The Review of the River Plate, concerning numerous companies including firms nearly forgotten because they failed early, were aborted or soon liquidated.
This part of the collection is under construction.
