Railroads controlled by the Associates

From: Anonymous

By November 8, 1868, how many railroads, and how many miles of rail did the Associates control? I ask, as by Nov. 8, 1868, the CPRR had 397 miles of rail laid, and 163 locomotives. They would have had a locomotive in park, along the grade, every 2.43 miles.
