Hey Bob,

Are you just trying to compile the database?  I would personally suggest
OpenStreetMaps, 
that way other people could benefit from your hard work - they also have
excellent tools to help you with entering the data.

If you're a web developer you can use the tools on CloudMade to produce nice
looking maps that incorporate your dataset.

I sure would like to see that data for the Toronto area, but I'm not sure
what I'd do with it to be honest.

Thanks for using our site,
Kevin

Hello Kieran & Kevin
 

I'm starting on a personal project to indentify all railbed, past and
present, in the entire Fraser Valley.
 
My first source is a map put out by CBRE called " Greater Vancouver
Industrial & Commercial Areas "
 
I found all the old streetcar runs at this website -
http://bcer.trams.bc.ca/maps.html
 
This site has some good ideas for the South of Fraser region.

There is also a book with all the old logging railbeds, part of a Valley
Logging history book I found at a museum.
 
How would you, digitally overlay these and perhaps add other lines as I find
them?
 
Further I see 2 pinch points in the Valley, Pattallo railbridge and where
hwy 91 & hwy 99 meet.
 
Then I need to figure out who owns which sections of railbed.
 
Ideally, I'd like to model an entire transit system.
 
Too much time on my hands now that I'm not driving the streetcars
