B&O St. Louis Division Customers 7-1-1973 – a great overview of the St. Louis Division including customers, commodities shipped, and the jobs serving them.

Chessie Coal Mine Carloadings May 1985 – shows carloadings by mine for the month which was used to calculate the mine rating.  I believe the mine rating was used in allocating empty cars, though I’m not certain on this.

Chessie System Roadway Maps between Philadelphia and Brunswick 4-15-1981 – I’m not sure if the railroad originally issued this as bound photocopies or if I have a copy of an original.  Many of the pages are hard to read due to poor copy quality.
