Harrisburg Divisio

Map: Harrisburg, Pa.: Retirement of 14,400 Lin. Ft. of Track Including 37 Turnouts and Two Crossing Frog at "Harris" and "State" Interlockings. Nov. 1964; revised to Nov. 1965. Similar to "valuation" style maps, this highly detailed map -- in 1" = 200' scale -- shows all original trackage and structures as of the 1937 electrification (I beleive) and indicates the first trackage to be removed in the mid-1960's. Extends from Dock Street to the south, through the coach yards, freight houses, REA area, the station, to the throat of the locomotive terminal to the north. A "must have" for the Harrisburg modeler! Original for scanning provided by the Harrisburg Chapter of the NRHS.

Each time the PRR made a major divisional reorganization, the accounting department released a new set of divisional maps. We hope to post as many full sets as possible; we would appreciate loan for scanning of any other sets.
