Description

In the early years of operation, RF&P railroads derived little revenue from its freight service. Most goods were transported by river and then by wagon.

After the Civil War, the railroad was joined with others to form a national system. Freight service increased dramatically because of the railroad’s location along routes that connected to the vibrant East Coast markets.
