Please note that the previously published map contained a labeling error. The maps for 1885 and 1893 incorrectly showed the extent of rail line between El Paso and San Antonio as being part of the Texas & Pacific. This line was actually part of the Galveston, Harrisburg & San Antonio in 1885, and was a part of the Southern Pacific by 1893. The extent of rail line north of this, between El Paso and Dallas, was part of the Texas & Pacific in both years.
