On 21 February the world's first locomotive-hauled railway journey took place as Trevithick's steam locomotive hauled a train along the tramway of the Penydarren Ironworks, in Merthyr Tydfil, Wales. His locomotive successfully carried 10 tons of iron, 5 wagons and 70 men miles in 4 hours and 5 minutes.

Trevithick years Coin. Description This is a 1/2 inch scale model of Richard Trevithick’s locomotive, which is considered the world’s first steam-powered railway vehicle. It shows four wheels, horizontal boiler, a single cylinder and gearing on its side.

He encouraged Trevithick to look into the possibility of converting such an engine into a rail-mounted locomotive to travel over the newly laid tramroad from Penydarren to the canal wharf at Abercynon. It would appear that Trevithick started work on the locomotive in the autumn of and, by Februaryit was completed.

Richard Trevithick, (born ApIllogan, Cornwall, England—died ApDartford, Kent), British mechanical engineer and inventor who successfully harnessed high-pressure steam and constructed the world’s first steam railway locomotive ().

Inat the Penydarren Ironworks in Wales, Trevithick built the first-ever steam locomotive to run along a track. It pulled five cars loaded with.

In FebruaryTrevithick produced the world's first steam engine to run successfully on rails. The locomotive, with its single vertical cylinder, 8 foot flywheel and long piston-rod, managed to haul ten tons of iron, seventy passengers and five wagons from the ironworks at.

The world’s first locomotive-hauled railway journey took place on 21 Februarywhen Trevithick’s unnamed steam locomotive hauled a train along the tramway of the Penydarren Ironworks, in Merthyr Tydfil, Wales. InTrevithick took out a patent for his high-pressure steam engine. On 21 February the world's first locomotive-hauled railway journey took place as Trevithick's unnamed steam locomotive hauled a train along the tramway.

InTrevithick successfully tested the first steam-powered locomotive to ride on rails. At seven tons, however, the locomotive—called The Pennydarren—was so heavy it would break its own rails. Drawn to Peru by opportunities there, Trevithick made a fortune in mining—and lost it when he fled that country’s civil war.

He encouraged Trevithick to look into the possibility of converting such an engine into a rail-mounted locomotive to travel over the newly laid tramroad from Penydarren to the canal wharf at Abercynon.

Crawshay's wager. It would appear that Trevithick started work on the locomotive in the autumn of and, by Februaryit was completed. This is a well-written book, full of amazing anecdotes about one of Britain’s greatest unsung heroes; the inventor of high-pressured steam engines, Richard Trevithick.

It inspired me to visit Cornwall to find out more about the man who invented the world’s first railway engine, twenty-five years before Stephenson’s s: InHomfray commissioned engineer Richard Trevithick to build built one of his high-pressure steam engines to drive a hammer at the Penydarren Ironworks.

With the assistance of works engineer Rees Jones, Trevithick mounted the engine on wheels and turned it into a locomotive. InTrevithick sold the patents for his locomotives to Homfray.
