Excerpt from Description of a Railway on a New Principle: With Observations on Those Hitherto Constructed; And a Table, Shewing the Comparative Amount of Resistance on Several Now in Use; Also an Illustration of a Newly Observed Fact Relating to the Friction of Axles Obstacles to the adoption of the new method may occur, which may not appear to be provided for; but, I trust, a little re ection will evince the impossibility of illustrating all possible cases, without rendering the description too long and tedious.
