Indexes to Valuation Maps

The PRRT&HS Valuation Map Collection includes:

  • an incomplete set of aproximately 10,000 PRR original linens (black ink on tracing cloth) stored flat in hanging folders contained in 4 large metal bins. These have been indexed and more than 3/4 digitized. (a few folders contained paper copies rather than linens)
  • a large collection of paper copies in over 500 rolls containing an average of 50 maps each. These rolls are being opened, indexed and digitized as time permits. The rolls were numbered when wrapped by the Pennsylvania Railroad. The first half appear to be a complete set of revised maps from 1948/49 for the Pennsylvnia Railroad including all owned and/or operated railroads with separate names. The rest are mostly duplicates of the linen collection, but sometimes include additional revision dates or missing maps.Unfortunately a few rolls appear to be missing, but until we open every one and confirm its contents we won't know for sure.
  • scans from microfilm of half size valuation maps used by the Conrail land department. Most were updated to around the end of the PRR (1967) with additional notes added by the Conrail land department related to property ownership.
  • miscellaneous additional maps from other sources.

Indexes will be added and updated as these maps are scanned and processed. Maps listed in the indexes have been scanned and are available for purchase.

State of Pennsylvania
This index should be a close to a complete list of valuation sheet numbers actually drawn for the Pennsylvania Railroad owned properties in this state. Use the pdf search function to find railroad names or locations. Railroads only temporarily associated with the PRR are still being identified. Water Companies owned by the PRR were included in the valuation but are not yet reflected in this index.

Associated lines not yet located in rolls and included in index but most are available from newly scanned mircofilm copies:

  • Pittsburgh, Chartiers & Youghiogheny (Jointly owned by PCC&StL and P&LE)
  • Monongahela Railway (1/3 ownership with P&LE and B&O)
    operated by the Monongahela Railway:
    • Chartiers Southern Railway - never completed
    • Connellsville & Monongahela Railway
    • Monongahela and Ohio Railroad
    • Redstone Central Railroad
