I am doing genealogy. I believe a relative from Ontario took a train from Pt. Huron, MI to Oakland, CA, in 1915, possibly via Abeline KS or somewhere in OK. I would like to know how and on what line she might have done this trip. Where might I find this kind of information? I am also interested in finding a route map or other ephemera to go with my story. Reproduction is good - I don't need a real antique. Thank you.
Thank you. I will check it out.
In looking through this interesting fourm, I didn't see an exact place to post my question. If I have more questions, where should they go?
FYI It's spelled Abilene, not Abeline

Yes. No matter how many times I look it up, I still get it wrong. Sorry.
I am going to get one of those guides from ebay. I think it will have the information I am looking for.
