Union Transportation Company

The carrier is a corporation of the State of New Jersey, having its principal office at New Egypt, N. J. The condition of the books of the carrier as of date of valuation does not permit the preparation therefrom of a statement of income and profit and loss. The carrier has filed reports with us each year since 1896, from which have been compiled the statements of income and profit and loss herein. The records reviewed do not indicate that the carrier is controlled by any individual or corporation on date of valuation, nor, on the other hand, that it controls any common-carrier corporation. It does not own any railroad, but had operated a portion of the railroad owned by the Pennsylvania and Atlantic from July 21, 1888, to date of valuation.


The carrier was incorporated July 17, 1888, under the general laws of the State of New Jersey, for the purpose of leasing and operating a portion of the road now owned by the Pennsylvania and Atlantic. Pursuant to this purpose the carrier leased the line between Pemberton and Hightstown, N. J., on July 31, 1888.


The carrier has connections for the interchange of traffic with the Pennsylvania Railroad Company at Pemberton, Lewistown, and Hightstown, N. J.
