DescriptionThis map shows how the major economic changes of the 20th century affected the state's railroads. Many lines have been abandoned and removed and others, tracks still in place, are no longer in use. Some spur lines are used only in late summer or fall to move grain crops to markets. Trucks have replaced trains as major transportation for small grains. Different railroad company-owned tracks are shown in different colors.
