    Triple A

    Triple A or "AAA" maps show with some detail the main lines and most yards... Online you might wanna try MapQuest.com. And on ArtCrimes there is a link to a satellite image map site... Happy hunting

    there are lots of specific railroad maps/atlas' out there.. you have to turn to the side of railfanning though.. search around on websites involved with that stuff... I know that Ive gotten a free one from UP, CP, CSX and a few map books that I have paid dearly for..

    Find you a good key map. They have all the yards labeled and layups are shown. They're very handy. That's my suggestion if you can't get the railroad maps.. The key map would be easiest to get anyway I think. They sell them at pretty much every bookstore I have ever been in. Yeah.

    www.deskmap.com sells an awesome book that has all that you need.. its 80 bucks though.. Only would be worth it if you had a few people to throw down for it.. thats what we did at least.
    there are a ton of other ones out there, check out www.trainsmag.com and start working your way around the sites that sell shit.. or fuck, just buy a copy of trains magazine and you will see plenty of ads..

    Just because it's on the map doesn't mean you can paint there fuckface. And some people actually like helping people out... like when your dad couldn't get it up I humbly accepted the task of fucking the shit out of your sister...Hah. I am bored.
