      Group,

      Here's the URL for an additional website for topo maps covering the
      FJ&G, both steam and electric:

      http://docs.unh.edu/NHTOPOS/Fonda.htm

      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
      straight.

      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.

      Glenn
