Storyboard Text

  • Golly gee Mr. Vanderbilt, how did you become such a successful railroad mogul?
  • Well Timmy, it's actually quite simple.
  • Wow, really?
  • Most of us moguls were already rich and were looking to make a quick profit and create a monopoly.
  • That sure sounds awfully greedy!
  • You bet! Plus, we received large sums of government subsidies and land to use to build them.
  • Oh geez!
  • But it only gets better Timmy! We made these railroads with little regard for the workers who built them.
  • I don't know how to feel about these railroads anymore Mr. Vanderbilt.
  • Much of the work clearing mountain passes in the Sierras was done under horrible conditions by Chinese immigrants.
  • It seems like most of humanities advancements come with a price.
  • I guess that's why most people like to focus on the many social and economic benefits brought by the transcontinental railroad.
