You understand how products are moved around the country and the world right? It is cheaper, easier and cleaner to put shipping containers on flat beds and haul them by train to the local area and have trucks get the product to the last mile.

The reason there are less rail lines is because it is more efficent, you can haul more people and product on a set of rails than can be moved on a highway.

Most of us could do without cars, especially in the urban/suburban areas.

Cars are a luxury that serves a purpose.

Rail lines are the backbone of the country. There is a reason Berkshire Hathaway is one of the biggest companies in the world.
