    What's the meaning of the underlined?

    Dear all,

    What's the meaning of the underlined?
    Thanks in advance.

    ...Perhaps you can imagine what it meant when, one fine day, fortune smiled on Grandfather. He got himself in a trainwreck
    Now, if something like that happened to you (and you survived) you had it made. The railroad would pay! So all of the lucky passengers knew exactly what to do; they commenced to groan piteously and writhe upon the ground while waiting for the doctors and stretcher bearers to arrive.

    Guess it's the same as "you did it" or "you managed to do it".

    "You had it made" = you're on Easy Street, you're riding the gravy train, you're rolling in clover.

    All are slang terms that mean you have achieved financial security, you'll never have to worry about money again.
