looking for a map

Thanks for writing, Bruce. 

I’m looking for a map that’s “clean”…the VDOT county maps have too may lines on them to work in a video where the viewer has a limited time digest the map. I’ve used VDOT county maps before, but spent too much time erasing confusing roads. Likewise, the USGS maps are packed with data. I wish I had a sample of the type of map I’m looking for to show here. The map should show the railroad. I thought the N&W archives might have something railroad oriented. I will highlight locations on the map that correspond the the video locations.

Any typos are unintentional and likely the result of auto correct. Sorry.
