Another thought, Mike - 

If you're interested in a specific location - i e, Atlanta, Charlotte, etc. - a directory from a connecting line would contain the same information.  Such directories usually give the name of the firm, what they ship/receive, on what line they're located, and whether or not they're open to reciprocal switching.  That information doesn't change from railroad to railroad.

Dumb question of the day: where might one find a copy of SOU directories of industries? Specific interest is circa 1950 but any year would be helpful. Thx.
