"A railway, and not a tramroad," said Stephenson, when the subject was fairly and fully opened.
The adoption of a tramroad, it is true, had tended to facilitate their transit.
He built a third, and ran it on the tramroad that passed by old Bob Stephenson's cottage door.
A tramroad or railroad, then; there was no other alternative.
There being no accommodations for passengers, the party walked the tramroad; at the terminus they unloaded and stayed all night.
Business men put their heads together, and began earnestly to talk of a tramroad.
The gauge of the first tramroad laid down had virtually settled the point.
There was nothing in a simple horse railroad, or tramroad, as it is called, to provoke an opposition so bitter from the people.
