A fine folding railroad map, delineating extensive lines and stations between Chicago and the California coast. The map is quite detailed, providing topographical information, place names, forts, Indian areas and branch lines. The Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe is red; St. Louis and San Francisco lines are blue; Colorado Midland R.R., black; Connecting lines, gold; And roads jointly operated with other railroads, green.

The Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe was a large railroad which extended across most of the United States by the time it merged with the Burlington Northern Railroad in 1996, forming the Burlington Northern & Santa Fe Railway. Although Santa Fe was the original destination of the AT&SF, the treacherous terrain around the city meant that the line continued past it to California, and Santa Fe was instead served by a smaller branch, which can be seen on this map.
