Acquisition Information

This collection came to the Library of Virginia as two accessions in 1999 and 2000. The bulk of the collection is a gift of Commonwealth Atlantic Property, 66 Canal Center Plaza, Suite 710, Alexandria, Va. 22314, March 1999 (Accession 36460).

Provenance

At an earlier date, photographs, broadsides, and a few miscellaneous items of the R.F.& P. Collection had been donated to the Science Museum of Virginia along with other R.F.& P. artifacts. In July 2000 the Science Museum transferred those predominantly visual records to the Library of Virginia (Accession 37441). Since all items of Accession 37441 are integral parts of the R.F.& P. company records, they have been interfiled with Accession 36460, and one Accession number, 36460, is used to identify and describe the entire collection.


Biographical/Historical Information

The following is a brief outline of the R.F.& P.'s complex, 157 year history. The Company has been the subject of several publications, which should be consulted for more in-depths presentations:

The Richmond, Fredericksburg, and Potomac Railroad (R.F.& P. R.R.) was incorporated by an Act of the General Assembly of Virginia on 25 February 1834. It was at the time the sixth railroad to be chartered in Virginia. The company's purpose was to provide rail service from Richmond to the Potomac River near Washington, D.C. In 1835 the General Assembly authorized the subscription to two fifths of the Company stock. The State was proportionally represented with two Directors out of five on the Company's Board. Throughout a large part of the company's history the State of Virginia guarded its interest in the R.F.& P. by prohibiting other railroads to parallel the route of the R.F.& P. In 1836 the tracks from Richmond to South Anna were completed, in 1837 the extension to Fredericksburg. Service for the Post Office began in 1838, increasing the line's traffic. In 1842 construction of the line was finished up to Aquia Creek, eliminating the use of a stage coach. From Aquia Creek the Washington & Fredericksburg Steamboat Co. provided the transportation to Washington. The R.F.& P. R.R. bought half of the Steamer Co.'s stock in 1845. With the goal of an eventual all-rail connection between Richmond and Washington in mind, the Alexandria & Fredericksburg R.R. Co was incorporated in 1851. With the completion of its line to Quantico in 1872, a continuous rail connection from NC to Baltimore had been established. The Potomac R.R. Co. lines were completed the same year and provided connecting service between the R.F.& P. R.R. and the A.& F. R.R. Co. For a few years, the new all-rail line was used alternating with the route that included the Potomac Steamboat Co., the successor of the Washington & Fredericksburg Steamboat Co., until in 1877 the R.F.& P. terminated its steamboat contract and turned its shares back over to that Company.

During the Civil War, the R.F.& P. R.R. operated largely in the service of the Confederate Army. The damage inflicted to equipment, tracks, bridges and buildings was considerable.

In the mid 1880's the company prospered again. In 1887 the Richmond Byrd St. Station was opened to accommodate the increased traffic volume of the R.F.& P.R.R. Co. and the Richmond and Petersburg R.R. Co. (R.& P. R.R. Co.). In 1888 a timely freight service for fresh fruit and vegetables was inaugurated, a business that should grow fast and steadily well into the 20th century. The same year authorization for a branch line was granted to these two railroad companies, so the growing volume of freight could be directed away from the city.

The R.F.& P. R.R., traditionally a short line railroad, had always relied on agreements with other railroad lines providing service south of Richmond and north of Washington, and in 1900, after several smaller lines had been grouped together, those railroads were: Seaboard Air Line R.Y. (from Portsmouth and southeast), Atlantic Coast Line R.R. (south of Richmond) and the Washington Southern R.Y. Co. (from Quantico to Washington, controlled by the Pennsylvania R.R. Co.). In 1901, Seaboard Air Line R.Y., Atlantic Coast Line R.R., the Pennsylvania R.R., the Southern R.Y. Co., the Chesapeake and Ohio R.Y. Co., as well as the Baltimore and Ohio R.Y. Co. agreed to form the Richmond-Washington Co. That Company acquired the entire stock of the Washington Southern R.Y. Co. and the majority of R.F.& P.'s voting stock. The six partner would all be treated equally and have the same rights in the dealings with the R.F.& P. The R.F.& P. and Washington Southern R.Y. Co. came under common management at his point, and operated jointly as the "Richmond-Washington Line." For the next two decades the R.F.& P. kept expanding and modernizing at a rapid pace. The Richmond Terminal R.Y. Co. was chartered in 1916 with the purpose of constructing and operating a passenger terminal, and in 1919 Broad St. passenger station (architect: John Russell Pope) was completed. R.F.& P. and Atlantic Coast Line R.R. both owned equal amounts of the Richmond Terminal Co.'s shares.

Starting in December 1917, the R.F.& P. R.R. and the Washington Southern R.Y. Co. came under Federal Control for 26 months, and played an important role in the transportation of military personnel and equipment.

Three years later, in 1920, the Washington Southern R.Y. Co., which had been managed jointly with the R.F.& P. since 1901, was completely merged into the latter. A large freight terminal was added to the Acca Freight Yards in 1924, tracks were improved and cars and locomotives modernized. The growing competition of automobiles on shorter distances prompted the R.F.& P. in 1928 to halt its less and less efficient steam train service between Richmond and Ashland and to replace it with a passenger bus service. Thus the Suburban Motor Coach Co. was incorporated the same year, the R.F.& P. R.R. being the main shareholder. Soon passenger bus travel was introduced between Washington and various places south of Alexandria, and the R.F.& P. Transportation Co. was chartered in 1929. It was fully owned by the R.F.& P. R.R. and the Suburban Motor Coach Co. merged into the R.F.& P. Transportation Co. in March of the same year. In August 1929, the R.F.& P. Transportation Co. and the competing Richmond- Washington Motor Coaches (owned by the Greyhound Co.) merged to form the Richmond-Greyhound Lines, Inc. Service was soon expanded to reach from Washington to Norfolk. During the Depression years, the R.F.& P. struggled with reduced passenger and freight service revenues, challenges which the company tried to meet by reducing it's passenger fares as well as attempting to join the developing market for truck service business.

Starting in 1931 the R.F.& P. Transportation Co. experimented with truck freight service between Richmond and Washington, but discontinued the operation due to lack of profits in 1939.

Traffic of passengers and freight reached a high during WWII, and considerable investments were made to modernize engines and rail yards. After 1945 passenger travel decreased steadily, and Amtrak finally serviced that part of the operation in 1970. With the foundation of the Richmond Holding Company in 1957 the R.F.& P. had started to pursue another business avenue. Although the R.F.& P. had always been involved in Real Estate deals, and was the sole stockholder of the Richmond Land Corp. (inc. 1901), it had done so only for the purpose of securing and developing land for the expansion of its rail service. Now the Real Estate and Land Development Business should become an enterprise in its own right. Other important development of the 1960's and 1970's were the opening of Bryan Park Terminal (1962), the purchase and subsequent development of the Dahlgreen Railroad line and adjacent properties (1964), and the move to the new Main Office building at Acca Yard (1976). At this point, the Richmond Terminal R.Y. Co. was dissolved, and Broad Street Station - no longer in usage - was sold to the Commonwealth of Virginia. By the early 1980's ownership of the Richmond-Washington Co. and with it of the R.F.& P. had changed: now the Commonwealth of Virginia, Seaboard Coast Line Railroad, Southern Railway, and Chessie System Railroad all shared the capital stock. R.F.& P.'s most important rail freight connections at that time were Seaboard Coast Line Railroad and Conrail. Despite continued modernization and collaboration with other carriers, earnings of the real estate branch outgrew those of the freight sector by the mid 1980's. Those changed realities let to a major company restructuring in 1988 with the founding of the R.F.& P. Corporation, a publicly owned, Virginia-based holding company that controlled the R.F.& P. R.R. and R.F.& P. Properties, a real estate investment, leasing and development company. Already before the reorganization, the CSX Corporation (formed through a merger of Chessie System and Seabord Coastline Industries in 1980), which owned the majority of the Richmond-Washington Co., and thus controlled the R.F.& P. Co., had been interested merging the R.F.& P.R.R. Co. entirely into its own enterprise. At this time the Commonwealth of Virginia, through the Virginia Retirement System (VRS) still held a 20% interest in the R.F.& P. After one failed merger attempt in early 1990, CSX and the VRS, which owned about 27 % of R.F.& P. Corporation stock by now, came to the following agreement in August of 1991: the VRS, through its subsidiary Systems Holdings, acquired 99 percent of the R.F.& P. Corporation's shares. It then sold the R.F.& P. R.R. to CSX Transportation, which fully merged it into its own railway line. This transaction factually ended the 157 year history of the R.F.& P. R.R. The remaining part of the R.F.& P. Corporation, the Real Estate business came under the control of the VRS, and was subsequently sold to Commonwealth Atlantic Properties.

Scope and Content

The records of the R.F.& P. R.R., 1834-1997, are organized into 31 series. Series I-X relate to record groups of the R.F.& P. R.R. itself, series XI-XXXI describe the records of R.F.& P. subsidiaries, both fully or partially owned, and of companies, of which the R.F.& P. owned a smaller interest at some point during its 157 year history, or with which it was otherwise affiliated. These include: Alexandria & Fredericksburg R.Y. Co., Alexandria & Washington R.Y. Co., Fruit Growers Express Co., Lewis Ginter Land and Improvement Co., Potomac R.R. Co., Potomac Steamboat Co., The Pullman Co., R.F.& P. Transportation Co., Richmond-Greyhound Lines, Richmond Holding Corporation, Richmond Land Corporation, Richmond Terminal R.Y. Co., Seaboard Air Line R.R. Co., South Washington Land Corporation, Suburban Motor Coach Co., Trailer Train Co., Union Terminal Corporation, Washington and Fredericksburg Steamboat Co., Virginia and Carolina R.R. Co., and the Washington Southern R.Y. Co. Also included are some records for the Richmond-Washington Co., which at times held the majority of R.F.& P. voting stock. In some cases information for subsidiary companies can be found as integral part of the R.F.& P. files.

The main record types found in this collection are minute books and minute files (the complete run of R.F.& P. Minute books, from 1834-1981 is especially noteworthy); legal files, like charters, bylaws, agreements, cases, contracts and deeds, and real estate files; as well as a substantial amount of financial files, like annual reports, audits, balances, check registers, daybooks, journals, ledgers, property records, security records, and tax records. To a lesser extent records of operating, transportation, and technical departments, some newsletters and corporate histories, as well as photographs are included. There are only a few singular correspondence files and letter books.

The collection includes records for 21 additional companies. Some are wholly owned subsidiaries, others were merged into R.F. & P. R.R., or are predecessor companies of those who merged with the R.F.& P. Yet another group of companies was affiliated with the R.F.& P. through a partial ownership of interest. The amount of records for those associated companied varies greatly. For some there is only a minute book or a few annual reports or security records. For others, the holdings are more extensive and a variety of record groups is present. The companies that have a larger share of records in this collection are the Richmond Land Corp., the Richmond Terminal R.Y. Co., and the Washington Southern R.Y. Co.

Several items of the collection were in need of restoration, which was performed by Etherington Conservation Center, either in the in-house lab, or in the North Carolina main office. The conservation work necessary consisted mainly of repairs of broken, torn and glued pages, damaged bindings, the cleaning of moldy volumes, and the preparation custom boxes to house fragile volumes, and those without binding.

Organization

The arrangement of series attempts to reflect the company's internal structure by following the organization of main divisions in its outline and by keeping the original order of documents wherever it was still present, or where it could be reconstructed due to internal filing numbers, file labeling, etc. Headings for files or filing units were also kept as found, whenever present. The arrangement within each series and subseries will be specified in the Series Description below. Miscellaneous files are placed at the end of each respective series or subseries. The predominant description level is at the folder and volume level. Exceptions are the photographs and broadsides, which are described at the item level. While the more then 300 photographs make up their own record group, the broadsides are inventoried under the Transportation and Public Relations, Advertising, and Marketing Departments.

The collection is housed in 347 boxes (including one oversize), and two map cabinet drawers. 177 volumes are shelved. Whenever size permitted, volumes were housed in boxes for better protection (353 volumes). Volumes that are placed directly on the shelves are interfiled with the boxes, following the order of the container listing (see below).

Oversize items are filed in one oversize box (No 344) as well as in two map cabinet drawers. There are a total of 39 oversize folders, containing various numbers of oversize items. Oversize items, which were part of a regular sized filing unit, were removed from their respective folders. In their place removal notices list the item(s) separated and the oversize folder number to which they have been moved. For location and content list of oversize folders see Appendix A.

Boxes: 28-63
12.8 cubic feet and 26 volumes.

This series is made up of five subseries: Charters and Bylaws; Cases, Claims, and Dockets; Contracts; Real Estate Files; and Miscellaneous Files. In addition to a copy of the 1834 Charter, this collection contains several amended versions (1924, 1949), as well as various Bylaws (1947-1983). The case files, 1981-1992, concern cases in state and federal courts, and contain briefs, appendices, petitions, pleadings, trial transcripts, motions, and statements of facts. They are organized by court and within chronologically. The entries in the two Claim Books, 1888-1889 concern compensation requests by customers, predominantly for loss or damage of freight, entered on a daily basis. The dockets, 1920-1938, issued by and addressed to the Interstate Commerce Commission deal predominantly with property valuation issues. Included is one correspondence file, 1968. Contracts, 1867-1969, include contract files, 1871-1969 (agreements, merger agreements, contracts, deeds, mortgages, statements, certified extracts of minutes, trusts; in many cases amendments, additions, and revisions - organized according to internal numbering system) and mixed volumes, 1867-1950 that are composed of a mixed set of legal documents, as well as Credit Bond Files, n.d., 1916-1942.

Financial Files are organized into 4 subseries: Treasurer's Files; Accounting and Bookkeeping; Securities; and Taxes. The financial records make up the bulk of this collection. Treasurer's files include information on R.F. & P. securities owned, the company's 1941 re-funding, as well as financial aspects of the company's transition to CSX, and financial statements prepared for the Board.

The Accounting and Bookkeeping section is divided into 11 categories: Accounts, n.d., ca. 1834-1978 contains information on expenses for various projects; Annual Reports, 1836-1995, consists of reports to the stockholders, with the exception of one report from 1839 addressed to the Board of Public Works (which held two fifth of the stock at that time) and one report for Richmond and Petersburg R.R. Co. for the year 1861 - there are volumes for individual years, multiple years, volumes that are bound with proceedings, statement, mortgages, etc., as well as reports for R.F. & P. and the Washington Southern R.Y. combined, for the years the two companies were managed together, 1901-1920; Auditor's reports are included for the years 1908-1965; Balances, 1834-1916, include Balance Sheets and Financial Analysis, as well as General Balance Sheets and Financial Analysis and one Trial Balance volume. Check Registers, 1907-1941; Day Books, 1860-1905; Income and Expenses, 1926-1972; Journals, 1834-1960; Ledgers, 1905-1960; and Vouchers, document the ongoing financial dealings and activities of the R.F. & P. Journals record costs of road repair depot and train expenses, bills payable, petty accounts, and interest on bonds, certificates of debt, and dividends paid; ledgers record assets, investments, debits, liabilities, surplus, credits, profit & loss, income, etc. The section on Properties, ca. 1973-1992, throws light on the type of properties owned and the many financial aspects involved including valuation, betterment and depreciation, by recording and analyzing specific types of financial and technical data. An exception is the Inventory of Property, 1873, which includes plans and drawings, in addition to listings of various other properties.

The subseries Securities, 1834-1957, contains a large number of certificates, registers, and transfer books, for Bonds, 1866-1939; Certificates of Debt, 1844-1901; Dividends, 1861-1957; and Stocks, 1834-1975. They provide a good insight into financial status and ownership of the company at different points in its history.

Tax records cover the period 1914-1992. Until an agreement with the Commonwealth of Virginia in 1912, the R.F. & P. had a tax exempt status. Federal Tax Returns include for the most part copies of returns, instructions, schedules, income statements, worksheets, receipts, correspondence, balance sheets, etc. For some years, records of wholly-owned subsidiaries, like Richmond Land Corp. and Washington Southern R.Y. Co. are included as well. State Tax Returns and Rolling Stock Information include copies of returns, schedules, and in some cases statement of property value and taxes extended made by the State Corporation Commission of Virginia. Included are also two filing units, 1980-1992, that deal with Real Estate and Property tax questions, and miscellaneous tax subject files, 1914-1973.

    Group 2: Steam Locomotive Pictures

    The 36 images in the Steam Locomotive group also comprise rail yard pictures, and several passenger cars, as well as the Cannonball Wreck at Dunlop Station, 1903. The steam engines depicted are from a line of engines acquired in the late 1930's and early 1940's. The freight train engines were named after Confederate generals, the passenger train engines after governors. Most engines depicted date from the 1920's through 1940's.
