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. While rail transport lacks the route flexibility and door-to-door convenience of trucks, it remains a thriving industry due to cost efficiency benefits, and its environmental friendliness compared to other transport options. More than 40% of freight within the U.S. is moved by railroads.
