How Did Railways Change between 1750 and 1900?


Way back in the year 1700, trucks used to run on wooden rails in the Cornish tin mines. Some development started coming in by 1800, the first fixed steam engines started working at many coal-mines, pumping and winding. This led to making a locomotive, which was a moving steam engine that pulled trucks of coal. The railways by now were built of iron, where most of the railways used the 'standard gauge' and the lines were 4feet (1.22m) and 8 ½ inches (1.43 metres) apart. The first railway line that carried passengers and coal was opened in 1825.
