Track Chart Valdosta GA to Palatka FL for Georgia Southern and Florida Railway

Rare Track Chart Valdosta, Georgia to Palatka, Florida for the Georgia Southern and Florida Railway

DESCRIPTION: Rare unrecorded cyanotype accordion-folded track chart or track profile (1916) for the Georgia Southern and Florida Railway over their Valdosta, Georgia to Palatka, Florida line. Measures more than 16 feet long. Railroad track charts are very rare and comprise an often-overlooked source for detailed geographic data that is unavailable elsewhere. Published January, 1916 with a MS note on the title page that the ballast is corrected to December 31, 1917.

The blueprint track chart was produced for internal use in the railway Engineering and Maintenance Office and thus may be the only copy remaining. Provides an unique source of detailed data for the railroad line which could be combined with existing cartographic data to enable father analysis.

Data includes railroad milepost numbers, track elevation, track grade, ballast composition (earth or cinders), track weight per linear yard, and geographical features. Notes features along the route including passenger stations, freight depots, water stations, coal stations, trestles, drains, culverts, and stock pens.

Please enquire for complete photographs of this 16' track chart.
