There is a nostalgic romanticism attached to railroads, given their status as the first continental mass transit system for passengers and freight. But in the 21st century, rail transport is still a popular option for international trade. Standard gauge and broad gauge rail systems interconnect major cities throughout the U.S., Europe, South America, Asia and parts of Africa.

More than 40% of freight within the U.S. is moved by railroads.
