Tapeworm Railway (United States)

Begun in 1836 by the State of Pennsylvania, largely through the efforts of Thaddeus Stevens. The meandering railroad's nickname was provided by its opponents. It was put up for sale in 1842.
It ran from Stevens' Maria Furnace iron works at Fairfield to the Main Line.
