This large format map shows the railroad network from Pennsylvania and Ohio south to Tennessee and North Carolina. Thirteen different railroads are represented on the map along with the Chesapeake & Ohio lines under construction in West Virginia. The verso contains several florid manuscript signatures of E.P. Goodwin who was an executive with the C&O Railroad. No copies located in OCLC or elsewhere, indicating that the map was most likely limited to internal use by the railroad. Dissected into 24 panels and backed with linen. Folds into gilt-stamped full leather covers.
