DeskMap Systems Professional Railroad Atlas

Post by orulz » Thu Feb 03, 2005 9:46 pm

Wasn't sure where to post this one, so I'll try here first:

Now that the third edition of DeskMap Systems' Professional Railroad Atlas is out, I'm thinking about buying it. At $75 it's not exactly cheap, so I'd kind of like to know whether it's worth it or not before I splash out. How are the maps laid out? Is it 1 state per 2-page spread? How large are the pages? What sort of index does it contain? What other information does it contain? How detailed are the "metro area" maps?

Thanks in advance.
