Historic Railroad Map of the United States - 1920

Rand-McNally New Official Railroad Map of the United States and southern Canada.

In March of 1920, the United States Railroad Administration gave control of the country’s railroads back to the original railroad companies. The national government project gained control of the railroads during World War I, in an effort to regulate them and make the overall system more efficient. The Transportation Act of 1920 returned railroads to private ownership with new implementations guided by the Interstate Commerce Commission.

This map was published in 1920 by Rand, McNally and Company. It shows relief, drainage, cities, and railroad routes. Auto highways are highlighted in red.
