The other parts of the railroad system using steel were the locomotives and cars. The production of locomotives rose from 300 in 1838 to 1,962 in 1880, and to 3,153 in 1900. At first, these machines were made mainly of iron but later mainly of steel. The amount of steel used in freight cars increased; it was not as much steel replacing iron as steel replacing wood.
Steel), but smaller competitors such as Bethlehem, Republic, and Armco also grew significantly. To examine these issues, we follow our standard taxonomy by first analyzing changes in the product and its production and the steel customers. Next, the activities of the competing steel companies are scrutinized. After that, we examine substitutes and the steel input markets (iron ore, coal, and labor). Finally, government actions toward steel are analyzed, and a conclusion follows. Growth and the production process In this section, innovations in the production process are described.

Nevertheless, some high-cost firms stayed in the industry or returned to the market when price went back up. This occurred because of the very high fixed cost structure of these firms. If fixed costs were high, variable costs were a small part of the total.
