Hello students, I will be showing you why we use trains for transportation here in a Pennsylvania Factory.
Hello Everyone, today I have a factory owner who will explain why that they use trains for transportation in the 1800s.
Lets start off simple, What are some basic facts about Factories?
But people weren't happy about the working conditions and low pay, so they went on strike. This caused The Panic of 1837 which closed down many factories. Then, Pennsylvania allowed 10 Hour work days and let the children go to school.
Well, Factories were beginning to form in the north because the demand for supplies increased as more people were moving into America
Alright next question. This is also simple, What are some facts on trains and the benefits of it?
Even though there were some problems like the fact that trains can't work on mountains and sitting on the train was uncomfortable, it became a favored form for transportation.
Certain reasons why people use trains more often because it cut travel time by ninety percent and thousands of settlers utilized the railroads in the 1800s to move west.
Each car of the train is connected by chains. Whenever the engine of the train starts or stopped, there was jolting, bumping, and clanging of the chains.
Interesting, okay next question. How do factory owners like you use the trains and why?
Factory owners like me take our made products and place them on the train to take them to its destination. We like using trains for transportation because it more efficient than steamboats and wagons. Trains can go any distance, wagons can't be pulled when traveling long distance, and sailboats can go any distance but it can catch fire and Native Americans attacked the ships. So, trains were the best bet.
Interesting information. Well, that is all we have today. Thank you factory owner for taking the time to answer these questions.
Thank you for stopping by and asking the questions.
