    :thumb: Hey gang I just found out the library of congress has a huge online collection of tons of stuff including zoomable railroad maps. These things are high def and you can even download them and use MR SID to zoom in and stuff. Here is the addy to the Railroad Map Page....

    Not that we can re construct the routes but it is cool to see where the longest train in the world was in 1830...right here in South Carolina measured a whopping 135miles long. Shame that a mile in HO scale is like 66.5 feet,lol.
