Item:113394163853Connecting Railway CompanyBond Certificate The Connecting Railway was incorporated January 1, 1902, under the general laws of Pennsylvania, for the purpose of acquiring and consolidating the property, rights and franchises of some other, more obscure Philadelphia trolley companies: the Connecting Railway Company, the Philadelphia, Germantown and Chestnut Hill Railroad Company, the Kensington and Tacony Railroad Company, the Busleton Railroad Company, the Fair Hill Railroad Company, the Engleside Railroad Company, and the Philadelphia, Bustleton and Trenton Railroad Company. Pursuant to the above-mentioned purpose, the Connecting Railway acquired at its organization the property, rights, and franchises of the seven corporations named. The Connecting Railway, itself, and those corporations, together with their predecessors, total 12 different corporations, and comprise the line of corporate succession culminating in the Connecting Railway as it was constituted during the time this certificate was issued. All certificates are sold only as collectible pieces, as they are either canceled or obsolete. All pieces sold are originals - no reproductions! Certificates carry no value on any of today's financial indexes and no transfer of ownership is implied. Unless otherwise indicated, images are representative of the piece(s) you will receive. When a representative image is presented in one of our listings, you will receive a certificate in similar condition; however dating, denomination, certificate number and issuance details may vary. We offer flat rate shipping - whether you order 1 certificate or 100 - you pay only the published flat rate. To take advantage of our flat rate shipping offer, you must add all of the pieces you would like to your eBay cart and perform a single checkout. If you use "Buy It Now" for each individual certificate, you will be charged a shipping charge each time - this is an unfortunate limitation of the eBay system.
