I do not have a humongous scanner. I simply have a normal home flatbed scanner. Therefore these 2' X 3' oxalid prints have to be split up into several scans per sheet. As the railroad route surveys have already been split into dozens of separate pages, I realize that the map images, which I'm posting here on the Web, are plenty confusing. Maybe someday I shall manage to co-ordinate them better into a more unified whole. But for now here are a lot of little pieces. Please have as much fun trying to make sense out of them as I have had poring over them myself.
How do you post horizontally connected pieces of maps to web-pages, which are made to extend vertically? It is much easier to scroll up and down web-pages on your computer screen than side-to-side. What's more, a couple of the individual scans can fit side-by-side on some of your large monitors but not on other normal-sized ones, not that I scanned them such that they line up together. Hmm, I guess I'll make two alternate versions of the same pages. To view all of the surveys one-next-to-the-other.
This book covers from Gary to Valparaiso, Indiana. Return here occasionally to see how much more I've accomplished.
