What is railroading of fabric?

Railroading is the term for rotating the fabric 90 degrees on the table and running the fabric sideways. This may be needed when the width of the shade exceeds the width of the roll. When a fabric has been railroaded, the width of the roll becomes the height (drop) of the shade. Not all fabrics are suitable for railroading, so best to contact customer service if you are not sure.
