|Ragnar's HO Model Trains Weeb Site|
As soon as someone was able to think of putting a staem engine on wheels the history of the Railroad was born. Shortly after that model trains came along, and so I don't feel like writing anything about it here, sorry, but I don't so look for it, you will find it out there, try books they are great for that.
Wheels rolling on tracks had been around for a long time before thet first trains, used in mining the tracks, whether wood or iron, made the work of excavating mines a lot easier and staem engines were used to pump water out and blow in air. The wonders of steam tecnology were unstopable back than and when steam engines started to roll they progessed quickly.
