Two maps with the same title. Both are handsome railroad maps printed in yellow with the states outlined in orange and the railway in boldly printed red. Both maps show a late configuration for Indian Territory to the east of Oklahoma with its capital at Tahlequah. The first map covers most of the United States to the Pacific Ocean (27 x 13.5"). The second map is a closer, more detailed look at the route. It extends only to the western border of the Texas panhandle in the west (17.8 x 13.5"). Both maps name all stations. The route ends in Texas at Ft. Worth, Sherman, Hillsboro, Gatesville and Monterey. Blank verso. Nice pair of railroad maps.
