History Of Steam Locomotives

The first steam locomotive was invented by Richard Trevithick in 1804 and was used to transport coal from mines to factories. These locomotives were steam engines that ran on rails laid down on land and pulled wagons loaded with coal. Since then, many improvements have been made to these machines through time such as replacing wood with steel for making axles, wheels, and other mechanical parts of the engine; installing brakes on the wheels so that they do not slide off the track when going downhill; improving their speed by adding more cylinders, etc.
