RR wall maps
Author: Soo715

I've been trying to locate a replacement railroad wall map of the US. One that also shows some of Canada and northern Mexico. I had one, it got destroyed in a disaster. I am a "rare mileage" collector and I like to ink in the lines I have rode. But....all the maps I see out there these days are laminated which won't work for my purpose. Any ideas?

Maybe one of the map companies could produce one for you that is left unlaminated.  For example, I noticed that Houston Map Co. (keymaps.com) advertises that they will make custom maps.  They make several railroad maps (laminated)--maybe they could make one for you unlaminated.

I think Lurch was offering an alternative solution in the form of pens that will write on a laminated map.

Some years ago, I purchased both a laminated and unlaminated map as you describe from deskmap.com.  Unfortunately, their website doesn't seem to have been updated recently, and the RR map they offer is dated 2007. But there's a contact link on their website, so might be worth an inquiry.
