w&h main yards: the family tree of north american railroads w&h main yards: the family tree of north american railroads by christopher d. coleman webville@spikesys.com tips for mailing me last updated 6-7-01 this is a compiled chart of major north american railroad mergers, takeovers, and controls. most date after 1900 but there are some exceptions. railroad names represent the railroad-handling part of a corporate entity, if different from the corporate name. i am limiting the chart to class 1, former class 1, or major regional lines. this chart represents only the "top" of the theoretical chart. many roads had predecessors too numerous to include here and many roads simply dissappeared through various circumstances. "the great list of north american railroads" is a comprehensive list of all north amercan railroad companies which i am compiling. due to time limitations that list is still not available. notice will be posted here when it is. this article is hereby copyrighted 1994-2001 by christopher d coleman. the most current copy of this tree can be found at http://www.spikesys.com/yards.html
