This scarce map depicts the privately owned railway line from Hobart to Launceston. The Tasmanian Main Line Company (T.M.L.) was a privately owned railway company which operated in Tasmania from 1872 to 1890. The company provided the first rail services between Hobart and Launceston, where it connected with the Launceston and Western Railway. On 1 October 1890, the Tasmanian Government bought the Tasmanian Main Line Company. The railway played an important role in the economic development of the island state.

The map is highly detailed topographically. Settlements, towns and counties are named and geographical features such as the mountainous region of the Central Highlands area, which covers most of the central western parts of the state are shown in detail. The Midlands in the central east, is fairly flat, and is predominantly used for agriculture, although farming activity is scattered throughout other regions of the state.

Condition: This folding lithograph map in A condition is colored, with very light foxing in the lower center in the border and edge.
