The 1971 edition continues the style of previous issues, showing the railways on a state-by-state basis on maps which depict all routes, junctions, terminals and major cities, but do not have such extraneous material as drainage, county boundaries and highways. The mileages between key points are indicated; all railroads--trunkline and short line--are included. New tables have been added to show information about the railroads and states they serve, including the individual companies, their mileages and the locations of general offices. The Atlas should be a valuable reference for railroad officers and shippers, aiding in day-to-day operations and long range planning.
