The future of the international railways of South America. A historical approach

In the closing decades of the last century and the first decades of the present century railways were regarded as an ideal means of linking the countries of America economically. Clear evidence of this aspiration is provided by the attempts —pursued over many years, but finally frustrated— to build a Pan-American Railway to link North, Central and South America, and the efforts of the Farquhar group to consolidate and link together railways in the southern part of the continent on the basis of control of the Brazil Railway Company.
