RE: [FJGRailroad] Topo Maps - Additional Website
Thanks so much for turning me on to this page!!! It is awesome!
I just downloaded 75 megs worth of maps here at work yesterday and
they print out absolutely beautiful on our color laser printers!
It's like having the real maps!!! I've got maps of all over

Here's the URL for an additional website for topo maps covering the
FJ&G, both steam and electric:
This is as good a starting place as any for our interests. Navigating
the site is fairly simple if you can keep your compass orientation
The maps cover a wide period of time, beginning before 1900, when the
Cayadutta Electric was still called that. If you want to see what
the Northville line went through, you can do it here. My goodness,
that was a straight stretch they had south of Northville! If you're
going to traipse the ROW when the lake is lowered/drained, these
would be good companions.
Most of the key maps are the 15 minute size, which may not be
detailed enough to see some of the things we want. Also, some of the
maps are either too old or too recent for Electric Division
research. For example, you won't see where it passed under the NYC
west of Schenectady, although you will get a clear picture of how it
went through Scotia.
On balance, worth exploring.
