RAILS                  
                                          
                                          
  
                                          
  
                                          
                                          
 TRAINS  ARE  SO  CONSTRUCTED  THAT  THEY 
 HAVE TO FOLLOW A SET PATH. THIS PATH  IS 
 CALLED A "RAILWAY", WHICH  IS  COMPRISED 
 OF TWO METAL RAILS, HENCE ITS  NICKNAME. 
                                          
 BECAUSE  THE LOW  FRICTION  BETWEEN  THE 
 WHEELS OF THE TRAIN AND THE RAIL  METAL, 
 THERE  ARE LIMITS FOR  HOW ACUTE A CURVE 
 CAN BE,  AND  EVEN MORE SO FOR  HOW MUCH 
 THE   GROUND  UNDER  THE  RAILS  CAN  BE 
 SLOPED. THUS  A RAILWAY IS OFTEN NOT LED 
 ON  TOP OF HILLS, RATHER THROUGH THEM IN 
 TUNNELS   (IF   THEY   ARE   LARGE),  OR 
            ARTIFICIAL CHASMS.            
                                          
 THERE WILL  BE TREES ON THE SIDE OF  THE 
 RAILS, BUT  NOT TOO CLOSE, OR THEY  WILL 
 BE  CUT  DOWN BY  THE RAILWAY  JANITORS. 
 THERE  WILL  BE  PLAINS,  AND  BODIES OF 
                  WATER.                  
                                          
 TRAINS  GO  BY DAY  AND BY  NIGHT. ALONG 
       THE WAY, THERE IS INFORMATION      
 SCATTERED, OFTEN PUT ON  TOP  OF  POLES, 
 TO BE INTERPRETED BY THE TRAIN  DRIVERS. 
 DIFFERENT  PARTS  OF  THE  RAILWAY  HAVE 
         DIFFERENT SPEED LIMITS.          
                                          
 SOMETIMES, TRAINS  HAVE TO STOP AND WAIT 
 FOR SOMETHING TO HAPPEN, FAR AWAY.  THIS 
 IS  SIGNALED  BY  RED OR  GREEN  LIGHTS. 
                                          
                                  
                                          
 MANY PEOPLE FOLLOW  THE RAILS  BY  FOOT. 
 OFTEN THIS  PROVES  TO  BE  THE  SHORTER 
 PATH BETWEEN TWO  POINTS.  HOWEVER  THIS 
 IS  FROWNED  UPON,   AND  VERY  IMPOLITE 
         TOWARD THE TRAIN DRIVERS!
