At this time there was an explosion of technical ideas, and this combined with greater national wealth and a rapidly changing social and economic climate to spur a railway boom. Railroad lines spread over every part of the world where there was a social and economic advantage to be gained, and there was an extraordinarily rapid development in the speed and capacity of trains operating on this lines.
