I recognize the ugly head of politics in the building of this railroad. A railroad is a huge benefit to the common citizen. But, a railroad is never built for that reason. Only with politics, greed, and corruption are railroads approved for construction. Historical facts support this statement. That is also the reason for lack of passenger trains in the US.
