Railroad Maps and Drawings Page

This directory listing (index page) is for scanned drawings from the Don Strack collection, and are presented here as part of the web site. The directory was created in July 2017. Additional maps and drawings have been added between 2017 and 2023.

The Don Strack Railroad Map and Drawing Collection contains maps and schematic drawings produced in the 1906 to 1972 time period, showing railroad trackage, facilities and structures for railroads in the State of Utah. The collection concentrates on Union Pacific subjects (depots, station tracks, etc.), but includes maps from other railroads no longer in existence in Utah. The collection includes maps and schematics of street railroads in Salt Lake City and vicinity.

The majority of the drawings and maps were collected in the 1980-1985 time period, with a concentration of drawings obtained when Union Pacific closed its engineering office in Salt Lake City in 1983, as well as closing other offices prior to donating its Salt Lake City depot to the State of Utah in 1989.

Additional maps and drawings were collected in the period between 1990 and 2010, including several maps acquired as part of the Ogden Rails book project in 1995.

The actual physical maps have been donated to various local organizations, including University of Utah Special Collections.
