The Transcontinental Railroad transformed the West because it linked it to the east, therefore enabling a faster export of agriculture from the West to the East.


The Transcontinental Railroad was a very great way for farmers from the West to sell their crops to Mid or Eastern States. Also, the transcontinental railroad enabled the West to actually feel like a part of the United States instead of an aloof settlement.

Hope this helps!
