While visiting the NASA complex in Cape Canaveral, the pathway used to transport missiles and space shuttle is over a gravel road obviously with a very firm base. While looking at some of the Russian launches in the NASA visitor complex, I noticed that railroad tracks are used to transport their missiles. What is the main reason for not using railroad track in Cape Canaveral? I suspect that I may have the answer but I would like to hear the opinions from other people.
