New railroad barons

Allow more and small competitors into the railroad system. Much like the POD self storage concept, commerce could be greatly added by a system that picks up containers in say New York and drops them in California. By getting more players in the container pick up and delivery system, we could generate more use of existing rails without costly expansion. Currently full truck trailers are transported by train in certain locations. Smaller containers would diversify shipments.
