    Default I have a doubt...

    Are they all correct? Or do they mean different concepts?

    1) The railway brought them larger freedom.
    2) The railway brought them higher freedom.
    3) The railway brought them greater freedom.

    1) The railways caused more than revolutionise travel.
    2) The railways did more than revolutionise travel.
    3) The railways produced more than revolutionise travel.

    1) Whole towns jumped up around major rail junctions.
    2) Whole towns sprang up around major rail junctions.

    Thank you so much for your explanation.

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
