Who were the cartographers who mapped the transcontinental railroad?


I am a 3rd year student at National University of Ireland, Maynooth. I am doing a project on transcontinental railroads and have found this site very useful. I was wondering do you have any information regarding the cartograhy or who actually made the maps that display the new rail lines of the CPRR? Who mapped the land? Are there names on the maps which are on your site? I have to provide this sort of information when describing the history of the transcontinental railways. I hope I am clear.
