While we're on the subject of maps, the DSR needs to be added in place of the DT&C south out of Detroit/Flat Rock. Also, I don't know if it could be seen on the map, but the Monon (CIL) has trackage rights to New Buffalo, MI on MQT.

CIL owns no trackage in Michigan. To keep the map simple, I simply show ownership.

FYI Atrain, you'd have trackage rights on the Conrail Shared Assets thru Detroit, then own south of Delray.

This is what I have for a current map of Michigan Paper Railroads. Let me know of any corrections beyond adding the DREC, which I just remembered.

Neither. Former DT&I out of Flat Rock, through Carleton to Diann, and southward.

Does anybody own the real NS Michigan Line and/or the NS ex-Wabash from Detroit to Fort Wayne? (If it even is Fort Wayne)

NS Michigan Line is off-limits.

I don't think the Wabash is claimed.

The NS ex Wabash mainline runs Detroit to Ft. Wayne and then from Ft. Wayne it works its way southwest to Kansas City. I'm a former resident of New Haven, IN(the city where East Wayne yard is located) so I know this line in real life very, very well.

Since Chessie uses portions of CSX outside of Baltimore and DC, should I post a system map?

You can if you want. We keep a Michigan one because we'd get confused otherwise :lol:
