Description:
Abstract:
The Rail Network is a comprehensive database of the nation's railway system at the 1:100,000scale or better. The data set covers all 50 States plus the District of Columbia.
Purpose:
The data set provides location and partial attribute information for use in national and regional network analysis applications.
Supplemental_Information:
At the time of publishing the DVD significant updates to the layer were underway.
