This map, prepared by a New York investment banker, represents the locations of the transcontinental systems and their connections to eastern and southern railroads. The legend identifies routes for 29 companies. The map highlights the impressive complexity of the rail lines in the central United States. The major cities in this region were centers of railroad traffic. Chicago had the largest number of connections with at least 10 lines converging on the city.</mods:abstract><mods:note type='exhibitions'>Exhibited: "America Transformed.
