Ed

Thanks for the advice. I was looking for information on one of the CB&Q companies and the Reports came up in the results, and thought someone might find it of use.

Rupert,

If you’re interested in listings of the various RPO routes through time you may want to look up “Mobile Post Office Society” as they have published a book on the subject and I think it may include sample cancellation stamps as well.

If anyone has an interest in historical RPO routes, there are details in the Annual Report of the Postmaster General at https://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/000518137. I haven’t searched the later issues but they were still being listed in 1900.
