~ List of Top 10’s ~
Throughout time, there have been plenty of ways to travel to different destinations.The first ‘people loving’ machine that gave everyone the opportunity to travel great distances were trains. Here are ten reasons why trains were and will always be an important factor in the transportation industry.
- Without trains and railroads getting involved in cinema, most of the all-time greatest movies and shows might not be as exciting and famous as they were without them, including nearly all war-based movies and shows.
- One of the first commercial railroads operation took a jump start during the 1830s. Americans simply took their designs and made better and more efficient locomotives. By the 1890s, the amount railroads could haul were 690 million tons of supplies and the rate of people at half a billion.
- Trains and boats share a common bond because both of them have the capability in transporting goods from one location to another, even through the toughest terrains. Both have the capability in carrying a very large amount of cargo to and from their given destination.
- The trains of the early 2000s and now don’t look too different from the ones that were seen in the 1950s.
- Trains have the capability of transporting goods that one might think of as impossible, such as cars, airplane parts, animals, canned and stored food, and clothes.
- Before the diesel engines of the trains came out during the 1920s, the companies who made them had to depend on engine based on standard steam that at times were proven to be dangerous to the environment, such as the ‘USL HS tender Oak’.
- Thanks to trains and railroads, the music industry took a large leap into something new for artists to make a song about. For example, “Drops of Jupiter,” “50 Ways to Say Goodbye,” “When I Look to the Sky,” and tons of other great hits involved the usage of trains and railroads. The uprising of trains simply gave artists a broader selection on how they wanted their music.
- The most luxurious and fancy ways to travel are by train. For example, “Golden Eagle Trans-Siberian Express,” “Maharaja Express,” “Royal Scotsman,” and “Rocky Mountaineer” are some of the fanciest trains to ride on. The invention of trains and railroads brought to architects the desire to make and design areas that people will love to be in.
- Trains are less likely to be halted or disrupted by weather compared to cars, boats, and planes. For example, a train won’t stop running when a storm comes, it’s hard to drive in slippery roads, and planes risk the chance of a crash landing when taking flight in the middle of a storm.
- Trains have influenced the cultural heritage of many countries like Great Britain, China, and the United States.
Trains and railroads have made a huge impact in not just the industry of transportation, but also the industry of cinema, industry of factories, and most of the other industrial substances of our current world. From dawn to dusk, trains will always move on.
