An attempt is made to "set the scene" in the context of the control aspects of an existing form of guided transport, examining both the philosophy and the technical developments that will justify the offering of an evolved railroad system as a "new" form of guided land transport. The control aspects are presented by looking at the results of 200 years of evolution in revenue earning railroads. The possibilities for further refinement in an evolutionary manner are discussed.
