My idea was to span the west with iron rails from Omaha to Sacramento to build a railroad across two thirds of the continent in the most hardest terrain you could ever image about 1,700 miles and more were made in the railroad.

advantages / disadvantages

The advantages in the railroad are it is a quick and more regular form of transport because it helps the transportation of goods. It helps in the industrialization of a country by easy transportation of coal and raw materials at a cheaper rate. Also the railroad helps in quick movement of goods from one place to another at the time of emergencies like families and such. Our disadvantages are of railway transport is its inflexibility and its routes and timings cannot be adjusted to individual requirements. Also railway transport unsuitable and uneconomical for short distances ans small traffic goods. And the railroad it involves much time and labor in booking and delivering goods to.
