Early Railways

by Ciamar Price

This e-book contains three short essays designed as introductions to their topics.

The Surrey Iron Railway, the first public railway in the world. Predating commercial steam engines, it was horse-drawn and made from cast-iron instead of steel. Rendered obsolete by the advent of steam engines, the route it ran through is still in use.

The South Devon Railway, designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel and driven by atmospheric pressure instead of standard steam engines or horses.

A brief overview of the North Star, built by Sir Daniel Gooch and Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the first Broad Gauge engine which eventually outlived the broad gauge network and was the last surviving broad gauge engine.

In addition, four other famous steam engines are mentioned at the back as ideas for class projects or personal research.
