The reason is I totally forgot I had this piece! I was checking some of my scans and noticed it. I will add it when I update my website. A rare piece the company operated for two years before it change it's name. Terry Cox shows this to be the only one known.

A little history of this road. It was incorporated in March 17, 1851. This railroad operated as a separate and distinct company to build a line from Hudson, Ohio to connect with the Pittsburgh, Fort Wayne and Chicago Railroad. The mileage was sixty-one miles from Hudson to Millersburg. It operated until 1853 when it's name was changed to Cleveland, Zanesville and Cincinnati Railroad Company. It like thousands of railroads fell into receivership. In August of 1861 a receiver was appointed and operated the road until  November 2, 1864 when the line was sold. 1
