Description: Railroads operating in Kentucky submit annual reports and GIS files for active rail lines to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, Division of Planning. Active rail includes any track not officially abandoned through the Surface Transportation Board by a railroad and that the railroad declares is active, whether or not any rail infrastructure is present on the ground. The GIS datasets provided by the submitting railroads were generated at varying scales. These datasets have been appended to a single file geodatabase containing centerlines with minimal attribute information for all active railroads. Attribution of the centerlines included in the Amtrak and STRACNET networks was derived from their representation by the Federal Railroad Authority. Adjustments to the centerline alignments were made by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet only if the centerlines submitted by the rail companies were created at a scale larger than 1:2,000. If spatial adjustment was made, it was to align to "current" aerial photography provided to the Cabinet by the Commonwealth of Technology's Division of Geographic Information. Limitations of the data: The Division of Planning has no source for GIS files of federal government-owned rail lines so they are not included in this dataset. The status and alignment of the railroads are as represented by the reporting railroads.
