The first rail Road

Stockton and Darlington are The first rail Road

The Stockton and Darlington Railway in England is considered the first rail road in the world, where the idea of using steam traction to transport goods and passengers first appeared in the hands of George Stephenson in 1821,

Who built several steam engines at the Klingworth mine, and he proposed the idea of using a traction method with steam rather than traction with horses on Edward Pace,

Who in turn planned to build a 12.9 kilometer line from Stockton on the coast to Darlington,

In order to take advantage of this rich coal sequence, Stevenson told him that a steam engine could draw about 50 times the load compared to horses,

Pace was impressed with the idea and agreed to allow Stephenson to prepare the idea.

The railways are old

The oldest forms of railway date back to around 600 BC.

And that’s when the Greeks created grooves in the roads paved with limestone in order to be able to drive vehicles with wheels,

This facilitated the transfer of boats across the Isthmus of Corinth, but when Greece fell to Rome at 146 BC,

These railways were destroyed, disappeared for more than 1,400 years, and then began to appear in the 16th century.

Then the steam locomotive was invented after three more centuries, and this mode of transportation changed modes of transportation around the world


The advent of railways fueled the growth of the industrial revolution, and railways have evolved over the centuries,

The first passenger railway was opened in 1830,

It’s the Liverpool and Manchester railroad, and that railroad used Stephenson’s idea for steam traction,

In the United States of America, Tom Trump was the first steam locomotive to be produced in the country in 1830.

Then the intercontinental railway was created, where the first railway was created in 1869,

When the Pacific Union of Nebraska met the Central Pacific Railway of California.

The first underground railway to carry passengers was the City and South London Railway in 1890,

Most countries use electric, diesel or diesel electric trains, but steam trains are still used.

Recent developments in this area include high speed trains, such as the Japanese high speed train,

Or the French train, Green Vitesse, which runs at an average speed of 300 km / h,

The magnetic sheaths use a magnetic force to allow them to move on the guide rail,

Reduced friction between train and track allows train to increase speed
