Dzhankoi-Kherson railway line was unprofitable because of the lack of building materials, there were no forests, stone quarries and large brickworks, with the exception of Kherson, there was no drinking-water on a certain distance that is why all necessary goods should be delivered from Kherson or Dzhankoi (Konovalov 2010).
According to the contract it was necessary to deliver not more than 120 000 of pine sleepers and not less than 80 000 of fir sleepers to Dzhankoi.
