Description

The railways carried a wide variety of goods at this time and were prepared to carry anything. Rail transport was the main way of carrying goods at the start of the 20th century. Competition from canals and horse drawn transport over long distances had declined rapidly with the coming of the railways. Motor transport, although developing fast, was not yet a threat to the railways.
