This work has a bit of continual plaguerism within it, so much so that the author seems to have only copied what was previously written by others that were by way of intellectual ingrate, and ignorance performing criminal acts of libel, and slander to personalize themselves as a sort of corporate big wig when in fact they are not and were not at any time as sharp witted as those such a my Great GrandFather JAY GOULD. Most of the writers aren't even informed enough to pronounce the name as GOLD to begin with regardless of the spelling. The problem with this one Christian Wolmar is obvious to make a name for himself by corrupting the institutions of transportation just as the prior publishers of competing news papers were. There are lessons to be learned by men of such high learning as those such as JAY GOULD whom offered affordable means of modern day transportation, and showed great business ethics that complement todays standards.
