Maps of the Tri-Cities from the early 1980s?

Unread postby BamaSubdivision94 » Sat Apr 11, 2015 9:44 am

Does anyone know of a place where I can access a map of the Midland-Bay City-Saginaw area from before 1985? I want to have a look at all the old lines that have been abandoned since then.

Maps from before 1975 will be appreciated as well!

That second link is just what I'm looking for, thanks!

Crazy how much track once covered the Tri-Cities. What's got me curious is that branch that curves south off the Dean Sub in Saginaw just west of Mershon and runs all the way down to connect with the Paines Sub on the south side.

Someone else on this board also posted a link to the NOAA website that houses historical nautical charts. The charts show an amazing amount of detail on near shore land features including railroad lines.
