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!
