B&O Springfield Division South Railroad Map


  • The Springfield Division South of the B&O Railroad started at Old Shawneetown, IL, milepost 0.0 and terminated at Flora, IL, milepost 74.0.

    This map begins at Old Shawneetown, IL and ends at Flora, IL.

    The track path and mileposts are displayed. The stations recorded on the old schedules seem to indicate the edge of town. In some cases, locations were extrapolated using Google Earth or other tools.

    Tony Howe and David Price's Mississippi Rails Google Earth Files made it possible to display the railroad routes. In some instances, the track coordinates have been updated.

    Touching or clicking a milepost marker will show a photo if it is available and some brief information.

    Selecting the route itself may also display some data.

    This site's purpose is to collect, preserve, and share the history of southeastern Illinois railroads. Every effort has been made to credit content to its original creator.
