Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The History of railways in W rttemberg describes the beginnings and expansion of rail transport in W rttemberg from the first studies in 1834 to today. From the start of the 19th century, transportation planning in the Kingdom of W rttemberg revolved primarily around the construction of canals, which were meant to connect the rivers Neckar and Danube, and the Bodensee, with each other. As a result of the advent of railways elsewhere, King William I of W rttemberg commissioned a study to determined whether the construction of railways instead of canals would be more appropriate. The report of the commission undertaking the study answered this question affirmatively, and recommended the construction of a railway between Stuttgart and Ulm, running through the valleys of the rivers Rems, Kocher, and Brenz. Toward the end of 1835, additional demands developed in Ulm for a railway running from Stuttgart, via Ulm, along the Fils river, all the way to the Bodensee.
