It is navigable from the sea for some 80 m.
It rises in the Nimba mountains some 10 m.
The important river Lofa flows nearly parallel with the St Paul's river and enters the sea about 40 m.
Finally, by the English and French treaties of 1885 and 1892 Liberian territory on the coast was made continuous, but was limited to the strip of about 300 m.

In 1860 Russia possessed less than 1000 m.
Between 1895 and 1905 the building of railways proceeded at a rapid rate, the total length nearly doubling within the ten years, namely, from 22,600 to 40,500 m.
The most important of the new railways is the Siberian, of which the first section, Chelyabinsk to Omsk, was opened in December 1895, and which, except for a short section round Lake Baikal, in 1901 was completed right through to Stryetensk, on the Shilka, the head of navigation on the Shilka and the Amur, 2710 m.
This runs for 222 m.
There is steamer communication with Stettin, about 40 m.
This line, with three branches, was over 38 m.
The train moved off at the rate of from to to 12 m.
A train weighing 92 tons could be drawn by one engine at the rate of 5 m.
The engine drew a train weighing 13 tons 35 m.
In 1828, on behalf of the Delaware && Hudson Canal Company, which had determined to build a line, 16 m.
It is reported to have hauled 40 or 50 passengers in 4 or 5 cars at a speed of 16-21 m.
In 1831 the Baltimore & Ohio Company offered a prize of $4000 for an American engine weighing 32 tons, able to draw 15 tons at 15 m.
Meanwhile the Canadian Pacific, a true transcontinental line, was built from Montreal, on Atlantic tide-water, to the Pacific at Vancouver, 2906 m.
The main line was finished in 1902, except for a length of about 170 m.
A transcontinental line was long ago undertaken across South America from Buenos Aires to Valparaiso, where the continent is only about goo m.
In Canada the Canadian Pacific was the only transcontinental line, extending from St John, on the bay of Fundy, and from Quebec, on the river St Lawrence, to Vancouver, on the strait of Georgia, the distance from St John to Vancouver being approximately 3379 m.
The greatest increase, both relative and absolute, was in Queensland; the smallest in South Australia, which added only 24 m.
Harriman died he exercised direct authority over more than 50,000 m.
The subsoil was composed principally of clay and sand, and the railway had to be carried over the moss on the level, requiring cutting, and embanking for upwards of 4 m.
The earliest arrangement of this kind was patented by John Blenkinsop, of the Middleton Colliery, near Leeds, in 1811, and an engine built on his plan by Mathew Murray, also of Leeds, began in 1812 to haul coals from Middleton to Leeds over a line 32 m.
In this case electricity was to be the motive-power, and speeds exceeding ioo m.
Thus if the maximum horse-power which a locomotive can develop is woo, the tractive resistance R, at 60 m.
If, however, the speed is reduced to 15 m.
This formula is valid between speeds of 37 and 77 m.
Hence Engine resistance, R e = 80 X20 = 1600 lb Vehicle resistance, R v =200 X8.5 = 1700 „ Train resistance, R = 3300 „ The speed, 40 m.
This is the horse-power, therefore, which must be developed in the cylinders to maintain the train in motion at a uniform speed of 40 m.
Therefore the horse-power which must be developed in the cylinders to effect this change of speed is from (21) H.P.280X2240X0 113X59 = _237 55 0 X 32 The rate of working is negative when the train is retarded; for instance, if the train had changed its speed from 41 to 40 m.
For example, suppose it is required to start a train weighing 200 tons from rest and bring it to a speed of 30 m.
The average velocity is 15 m.
The form of the torque curve, or crank effort curve, as it is sometimes called, is discussed in the article Steam Engine, and the torque curve corresponding to actual indicator diagrams taken from an express passenger engine travelling at a speed of 65 m.
Assuming that the train is required to run at a speed of 60 m.
Thus although at a slow speed the engine can exert a tractive force of 18,600 lb, at 60 m.
Hence for a level road the above load could be hauled at 60 m.
