Erie Lackawanna Railroad Collection: Inventory

Series I: Maps: ICC Valuation Maps


The set of ICC Valuation maps contained in the Erie Lackawanna Collection were used to reference property owned, controlled by, or crossed by the railroad. Originally issued in June of 1918 in compliance with the Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC), these maps were used for property tax valuation purposes and to document changes or improvements to rail lines and property. The map set also contains diagrams of major facilities owned by the railroad, such as train yards. The maps themselves were duplicated using various stocks and material, including waxed linen, blueprint, and sepia on paper.

While the map collection gives a complete picture of the Erie Lackawanna, maps of individual parcels of property depicted on the numbered sheets within each valuation section may or may not be present in the collection. Much of the Erie Lackawanna's trackage and facilities were absorbed by Conrail, which may explain these deficiencies. Nevertheless, the series of ICC maps includes over 57 cubic feet of folded sheet maps done on a scale of 1 in. = 100 ft. These detailed maps show properties in every state of the Erie Lackawanna system. The states in which the system conducted rail and freight operations include Indiana, Illinois, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.

To reference a particular piece of railroad property using the maps, it is necessary to know the correct valuation number. These numbers correspond to sections of property owned by various railroads. The numbering scheme begins with section V1 and is repeated for every state, and for each railroad within that state. Over time, the Erie and the Lackawanna absorbed several smaller railroads, yet retained the original valuation numbering scheme. For the user, this means that a given valuation section, numbered "1" in the state of New Jersey, may refer to different pieces of property once owned by different railroads. To find the correct valuation section in each state, consult the guide to valuation sections below.
