Mapping the Ghostly Traces of Abandoned Railroads - Jessica Leigh Hester's Atlas Obscura article about the abandoned railroad map! (Updated October 2021 after first appearing before this site was created in January, 2018)

This New Map Will Show You America’s Ghost Network Of Abandoned Railroads - Sophia from OnlyInYourState - I wish they would note that the map is not just for the USA, but for the entire world!

Harvard University's Data Smart City Solutions also updated their link to our map upon the changing of our abandoned railroad map: Abandoned Railroad Rights of Way

Our Map is also on BoredPanda's 41 Maps That Portray The Lesser Known Facts About America (I wish they would update that map as well. There are some incredibly beautiful and interesting maps on that link!

Magnitude and Direction notes that our Abandoned Railroad Map "is a testament to how much infrastructure we've let fall by the wayside." and while I agree with that, I would say that the reasoning for the rationalization of the abandoned railroad network is a bit more nuanced and multi-directional. But that isn't to say that improving the rail network in the US is not something we stand for, because to put it bluntly, it absolutely sucks.
