We have dancing chained down tree trunks.... that kill things... people are getting bent over someone suggesting a steam train???
I would just suggest, make a wagoner that you can hire to move you. It takes you along the highway system, to other stations that are bought for silver like the wagoner. Then people can get a slow mode of transportation instead of having to travel themselves long distance. The problem you solving is people like me can't be bothered to find the time to travel 8 hours to glasshollow market. Instead, I can go to my nearest station, pay copper for a ride to glasshollow, go to bed, wake up and be at the market.
