Railroading: A Definition

The term ‘railroading’ can have two definitions when referring to sewing:

Cutting fabric lengthwise one piece after the other along the length of the fabric

Sewing one piece after another without cutting between seams until finished with the work

The former has the advantage of saving fabric; the latter keeps thread tails and waste to a minimum
