From Wikipedia: The Americans watched closely the development
of railways in England. The main competition came from canals, many
of which were in operation under state ownership, and from
privately owned steamboats plying the nation's vast river system.
The state of Massachusetts in 1829 prepared an elaborate plan.
However private enterprise built nearly all the country's
railroads, using charters from state government that created the
business corporation and gave a limited right of eminent domain,
allowing the railroad to buy needed land, even if the owner
objected. The CD collection covers some of these early obstacles
these railroad had to overcome.(Note there is some duplication of
book titles between each CD in this series.)
