In the early 1880s, a partnership was formed between the Little Rock, Mississippi River, and Texas RR and the Little Rock and Fort Smith RR with the goal of creating a new route into Indian Territory. Part of this plan involved building a new bridge across the Arkansas River, causing the partnership to form the Little Rock Junction Railway and Bridge Co. in 1883. This map depicts Little Rock as a junction point for multiple rail lines, and also illustrates the country's wider rail network. Shows the Union Pacific line, as well as a second proposed trans-Pacific route, the Atlantic & Pacific Railway.
