thanks to the speed and convenience of train travel Promoted by visionaries and built through heroic effort, the American railroad network was bigger in every sense than Europes, and facilitated everything from long distance travel to commuting and transporting goods to waging war It united far flung parts of the country, boosted economic development, and was the catalyst for Americas rise to world power status.Every American town, great or small, aspired to be connected to a railroad and by the turn of the century, almost every American lived within easy access of a station By the early 1900s, the United States was covered in a latticework of than 200,000 miles of railroad track and a series of magisterial termini, all built and controlled by the biggest corporations in the land The

started to forget them.In The Great Railroad Revolution, renowned railroad expert Christian Wolmar tells the extraordinary story of the rise and the fall of the greatest of all American endeavors, and
