RRHX map site gone?

Unread post by Pixl »

There used to be a valuable resource of Michigan RR maps by county of old lines as well as current lines. I think it was called RRHX or something like that, had mostly yellow backgrounds. I can't find it anymore.

The MichiganRailroads website, which included RRHX, was upgraded recently, and not all at once. Perhaps some migration is continuing. Many of the map links don't seem to work or return results, but some do. I did a search on the word "maps" and got 54 results. The county maps (at the bottom of the results) appear to be listed alphabetically and end after Chippewa Co. So perhaps the others will show up later.

UPDATE: Found a map menu that seems to have links to ALL county maps, and every one I clicked on showed up:

Thanks for your reply SW, but I tried several of those links and I only get to map menus, no maps. Hmmnn..

Try this one - the link to Grand Traverse Co. - does it work for you?

Can confirm this one for Wayne County works, but none of the formerly-clickable parts of the image work, although I am not sure if that Detroit inset link ever worked.
