This Map of the Month focuses on the railroads of Wisconsin, with one map displaying the railroad lines that existed in Wisconsin in 1940, and the other showing railroad lines in 2005. The two maps, side by side, provide a startling visual of what has happened in 65 years to rail travel in the U.S. Legends on both maps list the companies that served Wisconsin; fifteen companies are listed on the 1940 map, while the 2005 map maps routes for only five lines. The brief accompanying article provides a rundown on the decline of the various rail lines.
