Map submitted by Lee M.

GOOGLE MAPS no longer available: With apologies, I am unable to continue showing Google Maps. Google has forced my hand by increasing their map usage fee from nothing/free to OVER $300 A MONTH for the Abandoned Rails website! This is an expense that I simply cannot afford. Rest assured I am looking at available open source alternatives, so maps should be back online soon!

This is incorrect as the CGW did not go from Clarion to Goldfield. This line was the CRIP&P. The CGW went from Clarion through Eagle Grove to Fort Doge and on to Council Bluffs.

The line on the map was CGW from Oelwien to Clarion where it went south west towards Eagle Grove on southwest to Fort Dodge onto Carroll and beyond. The Rock Island Line come fromIowa Falls northwest though Popjoy, Dows, Galt, Clarion then east though Goldfield going northwest though Hardy Livermore Bode, Ottosen, West Bend Emmetsburg,then north though Graettinger Wallingford Estherville then West .
