    I am looking for more information about a Rand McNally 1901 Railroad Map of the continental United States.
    It measures 44"wide x 38"high and shows all the rail lines at that time.
    What I have been told is that this map was a "throw away" and that is probably why I can not find anything like it.
    I found it in the garage and it wasn't in very good condition. Yes, only my grandparents would have hung on to it. But, I couldn't just dump it after it had survived this long. Is there any value to it?

      Thank you so much, AR8Jason. You really came through with a wealth of information. It's the background that the map was missing.
