"Sorry, I didn't have my maps handy so I wasn't sure of the correct verbiage. The one you have is the1914 map.  The one from 1911 would have just said Railroads: ___."

"Tom, My map shows at the lower left corner " Railroads..Open____ In Progres ...... So correct me, if I am wrong, but my map would be 1911? Thank you for holding my hand in this discovery, Helena"

"Helena, If you look at the title in the lower left corner of the 1911/1914 map you will see a title and credits, below that there is a mileage scale, and under that is either a sample showing railroads (1911) or two samples showing existing and…"

"Helena, I had the same question several years back.  The 1911 and 1914 maps are virtually the same railroad maps, but the 1911 map is only of existing rail lines and the 1914 is of existing and planned rail lines.  The 1916 map is…"

"Hi Helena, The first rule of thumb when dealing with reprints is "What year are they?" The Society only made reprints of the first twenty years (1888-1907). If you are talking about 1908 or later, they are originals. Tom Wilson"

Hi Helena!!!  I am sorry but I don't have any that far back.  I have a few from the 20's and 30's.  Then collection really builds after 1941.  I am still logging them all but I know that there aren't any earlier than 1920.
