Parte de NBCA Document and Ephemera Collection

This Canadian National Railways trip passes book is believed to have been created and maintained by the Office of the Locomotive Foreman (Boston Bar). CNR pensioners, employees, and employee dependents were eligible for types of trip passes for travel on CNR trains (annual, long service, and trip passes). The use of these passes were recorded in this log book, organized alphabetically by the last name of the employee with alphabetical dividers. Each employee's section includes the employee's starting date of employment, pass destination information, the pass number provided, the date the pass was received, and the signature of the traveller. Some employee sections also contain inserted CNR pass forms and other inserted documentation that include personal information. Numerous other textual materials have been inserted at the beginning and end of the log book, including CNR circulars, policy documents, blank forms, and inter-departmental correspondence regarding pass policies as well as inquiries about specific employees.
