Railroad Advertisment

All Aboard!

Step up to the platform and board the TRANSCONTINENTAL RAILROAD!

Why deal with the slow pace of a covered wagon and horses when you can zoom across the United States in the comfort of a railroad car?

Moving faster than ever before!

10 Miles of railroad track laid in a single day? Impressive!!!

~The First Transcontinental Railroad stretches from the East Coast of the United States to the West Coast. The railroad was built between 1863 and 1869. CONSIDER THE BENEFITS!~No longer would people travel in long wagon trains that took months to reach California. They could now travel faster, safer, and cheaper by train!~In addition to people, things like mail, supplies, and trade goods could now be shipped across the country in just a few days!
