Resumen

Este manuscrito examina el sistema ferroviario como una combinación de humanos y máqui- nas en relación simbiótica, y explica cómo el ferrocarril ejerció un importante efecto sobre la vida en América cuando hizo irrelevante el sistema de tiempo físico –natural—que existe en las ciudades y paí- ses en los que los relojes iban acordes a las condiciones climáticas. El autor apunta que el ferrocarril es un órgano social, capaz de evolucionar para servir a la demanda, modelando y alterando –pero nunca reemplazando—el contacto entre los humanos, y que continuará para mejorarlo y facilitarlo. Este ma- nuscrito analiza los impactos sociales, transculturales, psicológicos y financieros de la vía férrea en la sociedad norteamericana en los últimos doscientos años. La medida del progreso en los Estados Unidos es equivalente al conjunto de cosas que se han sacrificado.
