To re-industrialize the freight train.
The railroads that bind America are vast. During the late 1800s and early 1900s, they were seemingly ubiquitous. Commercial and passenger trains rolled on from coast to coast.
The freight train is an excellent source of resource shipping; being able to carry 100+ cars of goods in one trip. Today, semi-trucks and airplanes, both pollutant and costly, greatly transcend in use as opposed to the freight train. I believe we should add much more to the rail network and use the freight train as a primary source of distribution.
