Did you know? The origins of the standard railroad gauge considerably predate the Roman Empire, and may even predate the invention of the wheel, having to do with road rutting. The initial impetus for the ruts probably came from the grooves made by sleds and slide cars dragged over the surfaces of ancient trackways. Since early carts had no steering and no brakes, negotiating hills and curves was dangerous, and cutting ruts into the stone helped them negotiate the hazardous parts of the roads.
