UNDER CONSTRUCTION!

This map is under construction. Features may be missing, or not work properly.

Any suggestions/additions/comments are welcome over on the Trello Board - but please remember that everything you see is incomplete, and it may take a while for you to see your change implemented.

In the meantime, you can see the project's current roadmap, also on Trello. Thanks for checking the project out!

Northeast Rail Map
A beautiful map of all rail systems in the Northeast. It's not interactive and a bit out of date, unfortunately.
OpenRailwayMap
Includes literally every rail line that exists, and even some that no longer do. Amazingly detailed. Shows rail lines (i.e. the physical rails), rather than the passenger rail systems that run along them. Extremely extensive and thorough.
Abandoned Railroads
A pretty amazing project showing abandoned rail networks and cooridors across the entire world, though with a focus on the U.S. Not only extensive, but also very thorough. Currently an app is being developed to augment the existing web-based map. All the data is also available for non-commercial use.
Federal Railroad Administration Safety Map
A pretty cool map put out by the US FRA. Shows all above-ground lines actively used for train transport, with fiters for passenger and class 1 trains. Also shows stations, grade crossings, and a lot of other data. Utilizes the US DoT GIS data (see link below).
US DoT Open Data Catalog
Downloadable GIS data for all the transportation systems in the US. This has been very helpful in the making of the RAILMAP project - but is ultimately just the raw data without styling and lacking a lot of the additional information this project intends to show. Still very cool and a good baseline for future projects. You can see a map of the data located here.
Passenger Trains in America
A properly interactive map of many rail systems in the U.S. Includes Intercity (Amtrak) and most commuter rails. Does not include Urban systems (light rail, subways, etc), or any stations. Does have a feature to search and get directions along routes. Probably the closest to what I want this project to eventually be.
ACWR Interactive Maps of U.S. Freight Railroads
Some cool maps of freight systems in the U.S. The site and maps are a bit buggy though.
