You're probably wondering where the maps actually are. You came here to see maps, right? Well, the "maps" part is a work in progress. My intention is to present schematic drawings of the rail lines and the cities they travel through. I will be doing this in AutoCAD based on the maps shown below. Check back in a while and you may be presently surprised. In the interim, I give you just the covers of each.
Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific
The map lists the below address as an office of the Rock Island serving the DFW area. On a rainy Sunday afternoon when I had nothing better to do, I went in search of this office to see what was there today. I found the office building, but to my dismay, the suites were numbered 510, 511, 512, 518, 519... Suites 513 - 517 were MIA, so after walking around the entire building (in the rain, mind you), I gave up my search and went home. I'm tempted to call the phone number given and see who answers...
Rock Island DFW Office
2719 Avenue "E" East
Arlington, TX 76011
Erie & Lackawanna
This map lists the below address as an office of the Erie Lackawanna serving the DFW area. I thought this was strange since the closest rails to Dallas that EL owned were in Chicago. Yet, here they have a listing for a Dallas office. No phone number was given. When I get out to downtown Dallas and find this address (as well as the address for Pennsy's office), I'll document what I saw.
Erie Lackawanna DFW Office
1509 Main Street
Dallas, TX 75201
This map lists the below address as an office of Conrail serving the Southwestern US. While the office is located in Houston, I haven't had a chance to make a trip down there. Next time I'm in the area, I'll see what I can find.
Conrail Southwest US office
330 Meadowfern Drive
Houston, TX 77067
Chicago & Northwestern
Chesapeake & Ohio
This map lists the below address as an office of the Chesapeake & Ohio serving the DFW area. Unfortunately, I can't find any reference to an "Irwin-Keaseler" building in Dallas, but I'll keep my eyes open. Also, no zip code was given.
Chesapeake & Ohio Dallas office
505 Irwin-Keasler Bldg.
Phone: "Propsect 7-7201"
One final note of interest: besides the usual Canadian listings for offices that are outside the U.S., this map lists an office in Stockholm, Sweden!
Below is the address for Pennsy's "Passenger Representative" office given on the map for Dallas. Looking at the address for the Erie Lackawanna's office, I may be able to kill two birds with one stone. Once I get a chance to visit there, I will let you know what happens.
Pennsylvania Railroad Dallas office
1307 Southwestern Life Building
1506 Main Street
Phone: Central 9303
Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific Railroad
Here is the address for Milwaukee Road's "Sales and Service Office" given on the map for Dallas. These RR offices listed in downtown seem to be listed within close proximity to each other. I wonder if that's on purpose?
Sales and Service Office
1309 Main Street
Dallas, TX 75202
Phone: 742-5519 (A/C 214)
New York, Chicago & St. Louis Railroad
Union Pacific Railroad
No DFW offices are listed (nor are any, for that matter).
