    good luck finding maps... i belive all are dicontinued. however, if you know somebody who knows somebody, etc. who works at a yard or for a train comp. you may be able to get a crew change guide, which actually tells you which lines a specific train is moving out on, and, ithink, times and shit too (not sure about that). Also if you e mail me, i'm inheriting my grand-dad's old traing books soon (frieght hopping is a family trait). I'm pretty sure there's some maps in there, although they're a little old.

    good luck!

    one more thing...
    i may get shit for this but oh, well... as long as you avoid the bull, try asking people working the yards. In my experience and friend's experience, they'll usually help you out, telling you which train, occasionally even showing you an empty car.

    again... good luck!
