rail data?

has anyone figured out if we have rail line vector data?


  1. Oh yeah, so everyone else knows - we discovered that if you click on the "add data" icon and choose the bottom option to add data from on-line, you can search "railroads" and from the options generated you can select "U.S. Railways" (I don't remember the exact title) and it will instantly load. Of course, similar to the initial street layer, you will want to quickly make a layer of the immediate Syracuse area so you can turn the rest of the country's railroads off and speed up the file. I hope that all makes sense...
