William Ogden bought himself a used locomotive and some train cars and had a few miles of railroad tracks built from Chicago going west, all despite the citizens of Chicago telling him that he was wasting his time. But Mr. Ogden knew that the country could be crossed by rail easier than by horse or wagon, and he went ahead with his plan. It wasn’t long at all before the little locomotive proved its worth.
