Historical Map for Indiana RR buffs...
« on: January 16, 2011, 12:52:13 PM »
This is the map I use when tracking "ghost railroads" in Indiana.  I extracted this map from the "1920 Ohio/Indiana Interurban Map (Central Electric Traffic Association)".  More maps are available from this site => http://www.railsandtrails.com/Maps/

I have a 1934 Indiana Map that shows all roads and Railroads. If I can ever find some one that has a very large flat copier, I would make copies.

I would suggest placing it on the floor and using a good quality digital camera. You can make some very good copies this way.
There a fine line between a 'hobby' and a 'mental illness'.
