dsCurrentRef The original digitization for the main lines was done from 1990-1995. These lines were edited for accuracy in 2006-2007 and additional rail lines and rail spurs were created by referencing the 2003 Farm Service Agency (FSA) color orthophotography.

The dataset has been updated continuously as information has come in to the Office of Freight and Commercial Vehicle Operations, Freight, Railroads, and Waterways Section.
