in the western times, trains were starting. the trains were a hit as mostly rich people would use them. also trains would be used to transport stuff like goods more easily.

lawlessness grew quickly in new mexico because there were few men putting the bandits to justice and fewer wanting to do it meaning that bandits ran very rampant. also since new mexico was very big, bandits hid more easily. if captured, bandits would just break out since it was so easy back then.
