Mapquest!
Posted by tomnoy3 on Saturday, November 8, 2003 9:54 PM
Im making an addition to my layout that is based on both BNSF's Midway Sub and UP's Mankato Sub (inspired by this month's Trains and the fact that I live in Mankato) and I want to have it be fairly prototypically accurate. I decided to go to mapquest.com and I was able to follow the whole length of the line. And with the aerial photos I can see what the buildings look like without leaving the house! Also, you can clearly see the yards and track plans. I highly recommend it to anyone doing the same as I.

Unfortunatly, mapquest doesn't seem to ahev areials fo my city, which sucks since we have lot's of track through it, as well as the major hub to the south.

But it did have arials of Chicago and I looked at one of the Yards there, umm.....can we say probably never be modeled by me :D
