CSX System Map
« on: January 12, 2017, 07:34:46 AM »
The 2017 CSX System Map (written in Google MyMaps) displays the CSX rail system, and provides links to simulate flying over the subdivisions in a P-51 Mustang at 325 mph in Google Earth.  There are several simulated flights, so you might wish to check out my feeble instructions - LOL.   

Here's the link to the map => https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Ts9mAxQ5ycplnynhnXSEdzqAu7w

Only one error I see: I believe the C&ED Sub ends at Woodland, not the IL/IN stateline. :)

Great map!

I'm picking a bad time to map railroads.  CSX and NS are updating divisions faster than I can click my mouse - LOL.  I start gathering my info from Wikipedia, then check Open Street Map, and Openrailway map.  With CSX, I used their curfew map as a final check for the subs.  If info from those 4 sources jived up, I mapped it.  If they don't, the real work begins sifting through the online PDF files  ???  According to all my checks, the CE&D north end  terminates at the IN/IL border.  BUT...  the only railroad experience I have is driving railroad spikes with a nine pound hammer when I was 18 :P  Here's the link to OpenRailWayMap where the CE&D sub ends and the Woodland Sub begins => http://www.openrailwaymap.org/?lang=&lat=40.1089&lon=-87.5318  (zoom out a little).

Thanks for the feedback!

CE&D sub ends at RB Jct at Danville, IL.  Woodland sub is from RB Jct at Danville on north.  Map looks good to me.
