View attachment 841484 View attachment 841485 View attachment 841486 View attachment 841487 I’m currently at the Back To 1885 event and they have a copy of the backup rail map. I’ll get better and clearer photos on my camera but here are a few. I did ask if there was any chance if I could throw in a donation for a copy but the owner declined
Hi could you send me a pdf with this on pleaseOver the past couple of weeks I have painstakingly recreated the 1885 Hill Valley railway map digitally by hand based on the photos provided above.
I lens corrected and perspective corrected all the images into a base reference layer that I was able to use as a guide for the redrawing of the map.
My canvas resolution is 55" Wide by 36" tall at 300 dpi, I wanted it as high-res as I needed to print it natively at that size for my office.
I also spent a very long time looking at railway maps trying to decipher many of the stop names along the map insert. I noticed that many stops were either skipped entirely, or made-up town names (likely crew, friends, and family names), and these have all been preserved as best I could.
My intent is to get it printed on a parchment/canvas mix ($10 per square foot.. it'll be about a $150 print) and add some ageing via the coffee/tea method prior to framing, hopefully matching the same gold/brown tones as the letters from the film in 1955.
