Summary
This series of twelve documents forms a continuous map of the track of the R. F. & P. in minute detail. Among the features shown are locations of railroad structures along the track (stations, water tanks, pump houses, freight stations, etc.), track semaphore signals, private and public road crossings, water features, and mile post markers. Names of adjoining landowners are noted, as are abutting properties and the survey bearings of their boundaries. The large scale of these maps means that they are generally very long when rolled out. As an example, Section 1 is twenty feet long. These items were cleaned by the Library of Virginia Conservation Department in November 1999

The Richmond, Fredericksburg, and Potomac Railroad was chartered by an act of the General Assembly in 1834. The line ran from Richmond to Fredericksburg, Virginia, in 1837, and on to Quantico, Virginia, in 1852. The railroad eventually extended to Alexandria, Virginia, by acquisition of the Washington Southern Railroad. The Richmond, Fredericksburg, and Potomac Railroad eventually became part of the Chessie System in 1991.
