Cool, I guess it's still more efficient/cheaper/environmentally friendly to have that setup than a road.

Of course.

That track was laid decades before any road in the area. There's a telegraph line running alongside it lol (at least the poles are).

Lol, that's funny. Just in case anyone has means of receiving a telegraph in 2021, though it's pretty cool that they set up those lines back in the day.

Just looked it up. The railway and telegraph line was built in 1905, and the only road in the area was done in 1951.

Roads also degrade much faster than train tracks in harsh weather.
