i dont know exactly what they meant when they asked for the affects of the railroad on the "neighbor"... so i just answered the question based on the things he described happening to the neighborhood.

 

he said everything was torn apart and looking ghetto because there were mounds of dirt, halfly torn up houses, roads leading to nowhere, etc. pretty much made a mess of the neighborhood and metal was everywhere. he described it looking like an earthquake took place.

 

anyway, he did mention there was one good affect. (this may be the neighbor? idk) there was a restauranteer and he made use of the railroad and called his restaurant "the railway eating house", and they fed the railroad workers. so the restaurants and taverns took up the railroad names and benefited whereas everybody else was pissed off because the neighborhood was all ugly.
