Excerpt from Narrow Gauge Railroad System a Complete Success: Its Adaptability to the Business of the Pacific Coast Yet our undeveloped regions must be opened, and that they cannot be opened without the agency of railroads is as plain an axiom as the former is a fact. From such a statement the only conclusion that can be arrived at is that the present system must be changed for one much less expensive and adapted to the wants of the locality. It ought to be engraved on the minds of every engineer and railroad promoter, that every inch added to the width of a gauge beyond what is absolutely necessary for the traffic to be handled, adds to the cost of construction, increases the pro portion of dead weight, increases the cost of working, and in consequence reduces the useful effect of railroads.
