Indexes to Valuation Maps

The PRRT&HS Valuation Map Collection includes:

  • an incomplete set of aproximately 10,000 PRR linens (black ink on tracing cloth) stored flat in hanging folders contained in 4 large metal bins. Theses were referred to as "repro" (reproduction) files, stored here when an updated linen was made. These have been indexed and digitized. A few folders contained paper copies rather than linens. The "correct to" dates on these map range from 1915-67.
  • a large collection of paper copies in over 500 rolls containing an average of 50 maps each. These rolls have been opened and indexed. The rolls were numbered when wrapped by the Pennsylvania Railroad. The first half are an almost complete set of revised maps from 1948/49 for the Pennsylvnia Railroad including all owned and/or operated railroads with separate names. The 1948/49 set of maps have all been scanned and inventoried. The rest are mostly duplicates of the linen collection, but sometimes include additional revision dates or missing maps.Unfortunately a few rolls are missing.
  • scans from microfilm of half size valuation maps from the Penn Central/Conrail Real Estate Department. Most were updated to around the end of the PRR (1967) with additional notes added concerning property disposition at the time of the formation of Conrail.
  • miscellaneous additional maps from other sources.

Maps listed in the indexes have been scanned and are available for purchase from the PRRT&HS. Current pricing is $6 per map image (2022). Email requests to Stephen @ Titchenal.com (without spaces)

The following PDF files were generated from a valuation map tracking and processing database maintained offline for multiple railroads. You can search the PDFs by a named location to find the valuation sections including that location.

An out-of-date experimintal version of this valuation map database was available online. When an updated version becomes available you will be able to find it on this.link

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.

Operated Railroads include Lykens Valley Railroad & Coal Co.

Associated lines not located in rolls but some are available from the Conrail microfilm or other sources:

  • 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:
