ow did the railroad help with urbanization in texas

Apr 6th, 2015

Railroad construction in Texas slowed during the Civil War. Railroad workers left to fight the war. There were few workers to maintain the rails. Also, Texas had no factories for making rails or replacement parts for trains. By the end of the war, the tracks needed repair. After the war, railroad building started slowly. However, the pace of building quickly increased.

The some factors which lead to urbanization are : 

  • Funding the Railroads
  • Land Grants
  • Building a Railroad System
  • Railroads Encourage Growth in Other Major Industries
  • Outsiders Control the Railroads

The growth of the railroads in Texas had many effects. Like most new technologies, railroads posed new challenges and problems.

Railroads Promote Urbanization and Population Growth after coming to Texas by reducing travel time.

1) Trains travel 20—30 miles per hour.

2) Traveling from New York to Chicago via train takes 72 hours

3) Traveling from New York to San Francisco via train takes 1 week.
