Railroad Set

What was the purpose of Time Zones, as set up by the railroads?

It was to keep the passengers from becoming too confused when they traveled far. For instance, Someone in the Central time zone boards a train at noon and travels west into the mountain time zone. The ride takes an hour and he finds out that during that hour, even though his watch showed an hour going by, the train station at his destination shows him as arriving at noon.... the same time that he left his original location. The Railroads set up standard time zones to help people not go too crazy by trying to figure this out on their own.

Previous to the fast travel of the trains, a horse would not get people as far as fast and the different times didn't factor into the problem as much, but when you cover the same distance quickly, as in a train, one can get confused.
