Pioneer

A turn-of-the-century railroad map style, evoking a sense of bygone mapping.

This map has its roots in late-19th and early-20th century railroad maps from the American West. It has a strong emphasis on railways and roads are shown, but only faintly. But make no mistake, the features show are bang up-to-date, showing modern railways albeit in an old style.

Look out for the classic Western letterings, and the verdigris colour of the buildings which make a great local view of stations and their surroundings.
