This photo depicts the railway and the tunneling system used to connect different parts of India. These railways were essential in India for both the British and Indian people. Goods could move easier throughout India bolstering the economy, while at the same time allowing the British to transport goods from Northern India to their ports, and ultimately bring back to Europe. However, the most important aspect of the railways for the British was the ability to move troops and military resources throughout the country. Without this advantage the British may not have been able to keep complete control. The tunneling system used by the Indian people was extremely helpful for the British, yet seemed very dangerous to make, based on the fact that they had relatively primitive materials and experience especially with this new form of transportation.
