18__ Central Transfer Co Stock Certificate. The Central Transfer Railway & Storage Co is a single-track standard-gauge steam terminal railroad, located in Louisville, KY, principally on Ormsby Ave. It extends from connections with the lines of Southern Railway Co and the Louisville & Nashville Railroad Co near Seventh Street to a connection on Fourteenth Street with the line of the Illinois Central Railroad Co, a distance of 0.65 mile. The carrier is being operated by the Southern Railway, which, jointly with the Louisville & Nashville controls it through stock ownership. It was incorporated as the Central Transfer Co on April 16, 1884 by the Legislature of Kentucky, to acquiring a specified railroad property in Louisville, Ky., that had been constructed by H. A. Dumesnil under an ordinance approved by the mayor of Louisville, Ky., December 4, 1882. On August 1, 1883, H. A. Dumesnil conveyed an undivided four-fifths interest in this property to H. Dumesnil and the remaining one-fifth interest to the Louisville & Nashville Railroad. They organized the Central Transfer Co and conveyed the entire property to that company by deed dated April 24, 1884. By special act of the Legislature of Kentucky, approved April 23, 1890, the name of the company was changed to the Central Transfer Railway & Storage Co.

Purchasing Notes: Payment by check or PayPal. You can opt out of insurance, which I generally recommend. Ruby Lane strongly encourages insurance. However, this may not make sense on scripophily shipments (which are not exactly breakable). My experience in mailing thousands of packages is that less than one out of 500 packages does not arrive in good condition. Still, Insurance is recommended on orders over $100. On multiple certificate orders Ruby Lane does not compute the insurance charge correctly. I will correct overpayments, but it is best to get accurate order amount before paying. Do not hesitate to email me if you have any questions.
