During the start-up of the Civil War to the ending of the conflict the Union held a strategic and commanding advantage in terms of quantity of rail lines. The Union held approximately 31,000-miles compared to Confederacy's 9,000. The advance and Confederate captures southward further increased the Union's rail capacity in the North's favor.
