Why is it that most of the train rails pass through deserted place? This is one of the questions that children and adults alike ask about this mode of transport. It is rather obvious but it is surprising to note the large number of people who have no clue about it.
Here are the answers to this question.
Trains rarely get involved in accidents but when they do, they cause gross damage to the surrounding environment including building and farms. So, the train companies discovered that they can reduce the risk of accident by channeling the rails through places that are less populated.
The reason why the bus mode of transport is still loved by millions of people from all across the globe is not because it is fancy. It is because they provide an excellent scenic view. The same case applies to trains. As they move across the states, they provide the travelers with a special scenic view that is is unequal to no other. No other mode of transport can actually match the trains, and this is why the respective companies continue to make hundreds of dollars from this business every year.
Finally, the deserted parts of the country provide the companies with a rare opportunity to scale up. They can easily construct a new rail line if they want in the land without having to worry about relocating anyone to other parts of the country.
