    Diagram of the United States of America, Mexico, the West India Islands and Isthmus of Darien; by W. T. Steiger, General Land Office. Outline map of the United States and Middle America showing proposed routes of the Pacific Rail Road and its branches in connection with the various systems of existing and unfinished rail roads from the Mississippi Valley to the Atlantic and Gulf coasts.

As I will subscribe to a computer model railroad simulation program, I sure like to run a layout similar to Walt Disney's Carolwood Pacific's. Railroads were Walt Disney's dream long before my pal Mickey came around.
