Transportation Mediagraphy-Maps

Transportation: Canals, Trains & MotorVehicles History – A Mediagraphy


Early Railroad Maps (5 CD Set). No date. Price $24.95 from

Summary: This Collection contains some of the oldest and rarest railroad maps ever assembled – most date from the 1800s! Our great nation was built by the power of the locomotive. As we expanded west during the 1800s, and into the turn of the 20th century, we could not have possibly moved the people, equipment and supplies needed from one coast to another without the power of the railroads! This 5-CD set contains all of the original maps used by the railroads themselves to move the United States forward in history.

Review: I’m definitely a happy customer, and have already referred a few friends to your site, as well as my kids’ teachers.–Andrea, Shoreline, WA
Review: Hello this is Pon in Idaho and I had just received your CD today. I just wanted to tell you that I wasn’t sure about ordering it at first. I thought I would be disappointed like all the other sources I have ordered. But, when I first popped it in my computer, let me tell you that this CD has so much info, that I have been searching through it for about 4 hours already and there is still so much USEFUL stuff on it, I could not believe it! I have never been this happy about the other sources I have bought. But I am very happy about this. I just wanted to write and tell you good job!!!–Pon Chanthao, Nampa, ID
