Today let"s talk about how trains affected the growth of industrialization..
I heard that the trains cut travel time by 90% so people began to take trains across the U.S.
Yeah and also Bessemer made steel faster and cheaper so more steel was available to make tracks for trains to run on.
That's cool. I heard that railroads transported materials and cattle from the west to cities and small towns.
I read that 40,000 miles of new rail tracks were laid.
Steel was also used to create buildings. That's how skyscrapers got their start.
New cities and towns were built along the railroad routes.
