At first glance this map seems similar to the 1907 edition, however, this is a slightly larger and more detailed railroad map that extends a little further east to also include Indianapolis, Nashville, and Pensacola. It names hundreds of railroads with the lines of the Union Pacific and Southern Pacific shown in overprinted color. Legend with seven different colors locates operational lines and those under construction; also locates through color, the San Pedro, Los Angeles & Salt Lake system, as well as other lines half owned by the Union Pacific. The detailed insets show the rail lines in the vicinity of Los Angeles, San Francisco and Portland, Oregon. All state boundaries are outlined in attractive yellow coloring.


Condition: A
