Interesting Information - The Family Tree of North American Railroads
"This is a compiled chart of major North American railroad
mergers, takeovers, and controls. Most date after 1900 but there are some exceptions.
Railroad names represent the railroad-handling part of a corporate entity, if different
from the corporate name. I am limiting the chart to Class 1, former Class 1, or major
Regional lines. This chart represents only the "top" of the theoretical chart.
Many roads had predecessors too numerous to include here."
