Are these the large (approx. 2’ wide and 4’ long) heavy paper forms that the dispatchers used to record the train numbers, locomotives used, last names of train crew members, etc, and also recorded the times the train was reported to pass a certain location? If so, the ones I have are not Form C.T. 544 but C.T. Forms 551 and 552. Just wanting to clarify so I know if I can help or not.
