This large-scale map of the United States shows the country's extensive railroad network in red and extends into Canada and Mexico. A unique and attractive feature of this map are the 65 railroad company logos that surround the map, which are keyed to locations on the map to identify which tracks they own. Insets at bottom show Hawaii and Alaska, with only about 400 miles of tracks in existence in Alaska (none in Hawaii). Published by Rand McNally for the Lionel Corporation.
