1895 Rail System Map

Recently, while going over some research materials for the in-progress biography with a friend, she mentioned a website I had not heard of for additional information. It is called the Mardo Library, which you can access by clicking here.

And then, of course, I had to do some poking around on the site and came across the following map. It took me a few minutes, and a little help, to really decipher it and realize the lines between towns represented the rail system and the circles on those lines were the stops.

Most of the names are familiar even to today's maps, but is anyone familiar with "Pettys V." (just north of Hamburg)?
