The 1869 The Golden Spike map does not bear any hex references. These have been added using standard notation, i.e. row A at the top, column 1 at the left-most edge.
Note that all Presidential certificates that represent 2 shares say 30% on the certificates. I have assumed this is an error in my Beta Test Draft copy, as otherwise those companies would have a share holding of 110% in the game.

The rules do not provide starting capital for 9 players, but do give certificate limits for 9 players. I have assumed the amount of $225 based on a rounded division from a starting pool of $2,000.

Hexes: 218 161 7 18 30 - 2 7 69 41
The total count of individual items will usually exceed the total number of hexes shown. This will be due to hexes that contain multiple items, such as towns and cities in off-board areas and fixed locations.
Clear Where tiles with plain track may be laid. May include hexes with pre-printed track.
1 Town Where tiles with a single town (no station token space) may be laid.
2 Towns Where tiles with two towns (no station token spaces) may be laid.
Cities Where tiles with station token spaces may be laid, or where stations printed on the board may be upgraded. Does not include 'OO' hexes.
'OO' Yellow hexes where green tiles designated as 'OO' tiles with two separate station token spaces may be laid.
Off-Board Static, where trains may run to off-board areas, typically with values that vary according to the phase of the game.
Usually includes fixed locations that have variable income.
No tile lays allowed.
An off-board area may consist of more than one hex - each area is usually counted only once for each train.
Fixed Static, usually with track or fixed value stations printed on the map.
No tile lays allowed.
Rivers and
Mountains
Hexes that contain these features with a cost to place or upgrade tiles. Other features appear occasionally (Desert, Forest, Swamp).
