Paul French, our contributor, researched using the names of railroads that appear on the map and the following web site:

He found the following dates that the railroads were in operation:
Burlington & North Western 1876-1902
Burlington & Western 1881-1903
C. B. & Q. existed between 1868-1970
Chicago, Ft. Madison & North Western 1899-1901
Iowa Central 1888-1912
St. Louis, Keokuk & North Western 1875-1901
If the information about the railroads is correct, the Chicago, Ft. Madison & North Western seems to lock in the date of the map to a year either side of 1900.
