==I believe the first railroad in continental Europe was a short line,
probably less than 5 miles, constructed between Fuerth and Nurnberg in Germany
in 1834 or 35. I very much doubt that there would have been any railroads in
Russia before 1850 and think it even less likely that there would have been a
railroad "network" in 1825
