Saw this on Facebook, it's like google maps but exclusively for rail.

But only for modern railroads. If you search of an old railroad line check:

Actually it does have old railroad lines on it. I checked the area I live in and it shows all the lines that have been gone for over 50 to 100 years.

Speaking of abandoned railroad lines this link to a YouTube video came up in my news feed.

Everything has a lifespan.

Not quite. I am sure that some of the food that I was served in the US Navy has a shelf-life of infinity...

Hello everyone !

OpenRailwayMap is really interesting ! Because I saw, on a map, the detailed trackplan of the small SNCF station where I had to wait and watch trains ... (Pont-de-Claix, south from Grenoble on the single track line southbound to Veynes and Marseille ...)

Thanks a lot for this link. I'll share it on a French forum :thumbup:

See ya !
