It took a staggering amount of paperwork to run a railroad including tons of forms and reports. Here's just a tiny sampling of the paperwork that ran the PRR. Some of these would be great for use in more prototypical model railroad operations. Run your railroad like the Pennsy! They're all blank unless noted.
