Transcontinental railroads in and near the United States by 1887.

A transcontinental railroad is a network of railroad trackage[1] that crosses a continental land mass. It must be continuous. It has terminals at different oceans or continental borders. Such networks can be via the tracks of either a single railroad, or over those owned or controlled by multiple railway companies along a continuous route.
