Good resource. Those of us interested in railroads in Texas may find this resource useful. Although it is from 1980, post- many mergers, and hundreds of miles of track have already been abandoned by this time, there are still 1,000s of miles to look over.

Even if one has no interest in Texas railroads, the following can show how the systems we know today started out. Another excellent resource using state and commercial maps and surveys, "Maps illustrating historic railroad, water, stage or other transportation routes in Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and Oklahoma. Sorted by subject-date." Historic Railroad, Lumber Industry and Other Transportation-Related Maps

A catch-all from Library of Congress:

Railroad Maps, 1828 to 1900
