1975 FRA Railroad Maps - Download


The FRA Maps download contains maps for all of the railroads in the U.S. as published in 1975 by Federal Railroad Administration. There are 490 maps and a table of contents. Each map consists of two pages: the left-hand page is a map of the area showing highways and railroads, the right-hand page shows only the railroads.

As with our Official Guide CD sets, this download was created by scanning the original looseleaf pages into digital form. The pages are then cleaned up to enhance and sharpen the images. Pages are then converted into Adobe Acrobat PDF format and reassambled into a book. The original table of contents is retyped and hyperlinked to the individual pages so that when you click on a map name the correct map is displayed on the screen. Pages can be viewed, magnified, or printed as you like.

The FRA Railroad Maps download requires about 500 megabytes of hard drive space. There are two versions of the dowload:

  • Windows - the Windows version consists of an installer program which installs the files in a directory and creates an entry in the Start Menu.
  • Macintosh or Linux - the files are bundled in a ZIP archive and need to be extracted into a directory of your choice after the download is complete
