Who invented the first train? |The Full History
Train journeys are just so much fun especially with all the scenery around I'm sure you've enjoyed train rides as much as I have trains have followed the best and most important modes of transport even today but do you know the story behind the invention of trains.
who invented the train??
Men work in the coal mines was growing rapidly during Industrial Revolution in the 1800s but they were facing two major problems first was the inefficient transportation system of gold to different parts of the country the carriages were being pulled by horses that proved to be quite unsuitable and secondly in the mines made it difficult for workers to dig through who surprisingly the solution to all these problems was one man in 1804 a giant Cornish engineer Richard Trevithick stepped in Richard was hard-headed and curious since childhood no one really believed in his ideas but he proved everyone wrong he created an engine that contained a burning hot firebox that was fed by coal and burned at a very high temperature the heat turned the water in the tender into high-pressure steam this high-pressure steam energy then passed through the machine using steam pipes steamed from the boiler caused the piston to move one way and then the other the piston was connected to a drive wheel and the movement of the piston made the wheel go a full circle.
Richard and the full history:
Richard then created an extended design in order to use his invention as a means of travelling and transporting this is when mankind to baby steps towards a great invention the Train this was then known as a locomotive this creation was put to test Richards locomotive train traveled a distance of nine point seven five miles and carried a load of ten tons of iron however the locomotive was so heavy that it broke many of the cast iron plate rails which made people doubt his creation Richard made many more designs but unfortunately they didn't work out so he abandoned a poor little friend train he moved on and continued other experiments in South America in the following 20 years many engineers tried to make the engine more feasible but it was George Stephenson who took matters into his own hands George was asked to make an iron road for better transportation using horses but George being a smart man saw what our friend train was capable of George had always been great at improving things he learned that the locomotive didn't create enough energy so he studied the design of the engine that was created by one of the engineers unlike his predecessor George filled is designed with more coal and boilers and used wrought iron instead of cast-iron to avoid breakage his new and improved baby was called the locomotion number in 1825 locomotion number one became the first public steam railway in the world it ran from Darlington to Stockton carrying 450

passengers for the next few years George Stephenson turned into a very busy man he had visitors from around the world who wanted to learn from him the trade of railways that is what made him thefather of rails we have come a long way since then my friends in order to operate faster innovative maglev technology has been in use the maglev technology uses magnets to levitate the Train above the track reducing friction and allowing higher speeds that sounds magical right let me tell you something even more exciting drove your time did you know when trains were first invented back in 1804 people were worried that the speed of the train would make it impossible for passengers to breathe seems weird right in fact the train was so slow that it lost its first-ever ways to a horse now can you imagine that the longest train station in the world is coracle railway station in India it is four thousand four hundred and eighty three feet long and the world's longest route without changing trains is one of six thousand three hundred and forty six miles which runs from Moscow to North Korea the journey takes seven days 20 hours and 25 minutes whoa that's a long time isn't it .
