European and North American waybill

I recently won a European & North American Railway waybill off eBay, and it arrived today. It is dated April 5th, 1875 and I've put a scan on my RailDocs site.

The European & North American was intended to run from Saint John, NB to Shediac, NB. It ran out of money and was completed by the province, and became part of the Intercolonial Railway when that was built.

I love collecting these old bits of paper. There's a waybill from the New Brunswick Railway from the same seller that I am coveting. :)
