This detailed blueprint shows the track and property owners of the Chicago and Northwestern Railway in Balaton, Minnesota – a town of about 600 people in the southeastern part of the state. Originally drafted in 1917, the diagram was voided by the Central Engineering Department in 1939, at which time an updated edition was likely issued. Buildings are outlined and individually labeled while precise measurements, down to the foot and inch, are noted throughout the image.
